There’s no day like Earth Day at the Plant City Commons Community Garden, and anyone who visited Saturday saw that firsthand at the new Earth, Wind & Garden event.
The all-day affair at the garden, 2001 E. Cherry St., invited attendees to come out for free, family-friendly fun and educational activities to help more people become better stewards of our Earth. Kids and adults could check out food, garden and plant demos and learn about water conservation, aquaponics, making tasty treats from your crops, how to make your own little “pond in a jar” ecosystem and much more. The kids could take part in a sensory scavenger hunt and paint whatever they wanted on a mural provided by MAKE Plant City. There were also plenty of vendors on site selling handmade wares, artwork and plants.
