Saturday, April 12th: Earth Day Festival, 12:00–3:00 p.m.
Whole Foods Market means green! Fair Lakes is hosting an earth lover's festival in the store featuring a steel drummer, instructions on making your own reusable bags, great giveaways and great "green" demos! Also, we'll be giving away reusable bags from 1–2pm and our Whole Body department is hosting a (gently) used clothing drive. Bring in 5 items or more and receive a free bodycare gift!EcoStewards Alliance will be in the house raffling off an eco–tour and giving a demonstration of their worm bin, plus we'll show you how to make your garden grow in a a very green way – using brewed compost "tea" which is a great way to get the best out of your garden – pesticide free!
Thursday, April 17th: Canning Workshop, 6:30–8:30 p.m.
The season's best is upon us, and to celebrate we're bringing in a local husband and wife team, Scott and Lisa, to show us how to capture the season by canning our fruits and veggies to preserve them year round! Learn how to take your garden's freshest and turn it in to winter's supply. This class is free, so please sign up at our customer service booth.
Wednesday, April 23rd: Kid's Club Puppet Show!, 3:00 p.m.
EcoStewards Alliance is teaming up with Gleemania to bring us a show called "Listening to Global Warnings" to teach children (and adults alike!) about global warming and the easiest ways to understand it. This puppet show is interactive, so the audience members get to become part of it. It should be a great time, and we could learn a lot from it too! Each child in attendance will get a little tree to take home and plant in honor of earth day.
Whole Foods has lots of great events posted on their calendar each month. We may pass on a few from time to time, but please check it out yourself. It would be great to show up as a group to any of these events. Please email us if you are interested in going together. See you soon!

April Meeting: Organic, All Natural, Free Range...Oh My! How to decipher food labels so you can choose what to eat.
We discussed many food labelling buzz words and talked about how we all make food choices for our family. Full notes and resources will be posted on the local Yahoo email loop, but here are a few resources you many find helpful.
- Environmental Working Group's guide to pesticide concentrations in food.
- Local Harvest: find CSAs (and other places to get fresh and or local food) near you
We hope to see you May 6th for our next meeting!
