Happy Earth Day to you! Happy Earth Day to . . .

Update: Thanks to eco-guide Michael Wolfe and the twenty eco-enthusiasts who participated with him, the Earth Day tour was another big success. In true Earth Day style, the group even picked up several bags of litter on its travels.

From Wednesday, April 22, to Saturday, April 25, 2009, the Garden City Lands Coalition is celebrating Earth Day.

Join the Wednesday, April 22, eco-tour of the lands at 6 p.m. Or come to the Garden City Lands Coalition booth and other Earth-friendly booths and activities on Saturday, April 25, at the Terra Nova Rural Park, 2431/2631 Westminster Highway, Richmond, BC, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Or do some relevant reading. The Garden City Lands are often associated with the values of local food, not just to reduce the greenhouse gas effects of transportation but also to garner a range of other benefits, including great kinds of community building. A recent Worldwatch article, “Is Local Food Better?”, analyzes such values in an insightful way.

By the way, the Jewish Tribune has an Earth Day issue of the Western Edition coming out on April 23, and we’ve heard it will include a column on the Garden City Lands from a Jewish perspective.
