Earth Day Celebration

2024-04-20 2024-04-20 Earth Day Celebration

On Saturday April 20th, Transition Woodbridge will once again be celebrating Earth Day with a Local Food and Environment Fair in Whisstocks Place with music, films and fun activities for all ages.

The theme of Earth Day this year is 'Our Planet vs Plastics' and they will be promoting the idea of reducing the amount of plastic in our homes and lives.

Transition Woodbridge invite you to come to the fair to find some of our best local food producers using no or less plastic in their packaging and local groups like Suffolk Wildlife Trust, RSPB and Save the Deben who care for our environment and campaign for its protection.

The new local Fair-Trade team will be promoting fairly traded goods from around the world. Cupboard Love’s mobile refill shop will come stocked with products offering alternatives to plastics and a wide range of wholefoods, herbs, and spices as well as personal and household cleaning products. Save on packaging by bringing along your own containers to refill at very reasonable prices.

Sea Folk Arts will be enhancing the whole day from 10-4PM with live music from popular local musicians on Whisstock’s Place including the aquatronic beats of Aartwork, singer-songwriters Ash Carr, Elly Tree, Petra Garrard and Martin Wilks with the Fete Accomplis with storytelling for children of all ages from Bards Aloud.

In the Long Shed Gallery, you will find a varied programme – enjoy creative family activities using no plastic materials and find fun ways to re-use plastic packaging, watch videos about local food producers and relax with river films and music from Jan Pulsford and Woodbridge Ambient Music Festival.

So come along to Whisstocks Place on Saturday April 20th from 10am to 4pm to seek out some amazing local food and the people who produce it, learn about ways to help the environment, and make your life less plastic all while enjoying some wonderful music.
