Come hang with us for a fun afternoon of activities, education, workshops, movement and music as we celebrate our mother… Mother Earth!

This event was created is to elevate consciousness, raise awareness, and educate our community about green initiatives and how each person can reduce their carbon footprint and make a positive impact, locally and globally.

Some areas of focus this year are: reducing the use of single-use plastics, reducing food waste through cooking techniques and composting, sourcing consciously and locally, growing one’s own food, cleaning up our local communities, and creating more awareness of our local parks and beaches. The primary goal is to introduce our community to a variety of people, ideas, concepts, businesses, flavors, and avenues to get involved in more environmentally conscious ways.

Start saving your #5 plastics to bring with you so that they can be recycled by Whole Foods Market's «Gimme 5» recycling program. Also, bring used jars and aluminum cans, as well as old clothes to be used at the up-cycled workshop and beyond.

There will be layered activities and programming throughout the entire day, including:
+Live music with Keith Johns (2-4pm) and DJ Tracy (12-2)
+Yoga with Dawnbyoga and Ahana Yoga (12-1pm)
+Cooking demos and hands-on classes in the “Yard Box"
11-12 with Pamela Wasabi/ 3:30-4:30 with Miami Smokers
+Awesome eco friendly brands like Respect The Fin
+Environmental awareness education with booths like Surfrider Foundation Miami Chapter and Debris Free Oceans.
+Activities and workshops in the garden under the Whole Foods Market Pergola, including terrarium making, herbalist gardening, composting, up-cycled bracelet making with The Full Edit, and more
+Sustainably focused food and beverage offerings throughout the event, like Not Another Organic Brand+, among others.
+At the bar, drink $6 beers from Saltwater Brewery and Concrete Beach Brewery and a portion of the drinks' proceeds will go right back to non profit organizations included in the event.

+ Jungle Island will feature a special activity that teaches conservation as it applies to animals living in the wild

As the festival winds down, our environmental activism gets going at 4:30 with a collaborative community clean up with Surfrider Foundation Miami Chapter and Debris Free Oceans.

Stay a bit later to join Green Drinks to engage in a discussion about climate change at 7pm under the della tent.

This will be a fun-filled day in celebration of our planet earth! Join us. Free with RSVP. Most workshops are free or at a reduced price.

A special thank you to Earth Day at The Yard sponsor, Awesomely Done Photo Booth!
