Celebrate Earth Day 2017 at MLK Park
April 22, 2017 @ 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Either walk to the park collecting trash along the way from our neighborhood to leave at the park for collection, or stop by the park and pick up a bag and gloves and help spring clean the site. Either way, join us to celebrate Earth Day!
This year, we’re excited to announce a partnership with Hennepin County Master Gardeners; from 9:30 AM – noon Master Gardeners will be available to answer all of your gardening questions. Information on a their plant sale, with both vegetables and native plants, as well as contact information for Master Gardeners in our area will be shared. Additionally, Master Gardeners will be sharing information about their Donation Garden Project with the Aliveness Project, also located at MLK Park.
Also, get your garden started with super local compost! KFNA is working with the MN Plate to Garden Compost Program and will be distributing bags of compost from the site that receives organics recycling from our community. You can complete the loop of growing food, eating food, and then turning food scraps back in to soil to grow food again! For a donation benefiting KFNA and MLK Park, you can shovel a 20 lb. bag of local compost to take back to your garden (limit 4 bags per household, please).
We look forward to seeing you and to announcing further partnerships for our upcoming Earth Day!
