As you may know it is Earth Day this Saturday, so why not make a plan for a weekend getaway to Pender Island? While you are here you can take some time to enjoy a walk on one of our many forest trails, or public access beaches. For a map and some local tips, please drop by my office at Dockside Realty in Hope Bay. While you're there, you can also visit the Artist Gallery, have some lunch at Hope Bay Cafe, and do some souvenir shopping!
Here's the rundown on the events scheduled for Earth Day:
Saturday, April 19
9:30am - Pender Island Farmers' Market - The market continues with locally grown/made food and crafts every Saturday until 1pm.
10:00am - Beach Cleanup - Join the Beach Buddy group and help with the BC Coastal Cleanup's 20th year. Meet at 10am at the Driftwood overflow parking lot. Dress for the weather and bring gloves. Bags are provided.
12:00pm - Earth Day Celebration - Return to the Driftwood to dispose of the garbage you collected, then gather under the tents to celebrate Earth Day with displays, prizes and live music.
7:30pm - Film Night at the Hall presents Earth Day film Garbage Warrior - The story of renegade architect Michael Reynolds who uses beer cans, water bottles and other assorted garbage to produce thermal mass and energy-independent housing. New Mexico-based Reynolds have devoted the last 30 years to advancing the art of "Earthship Biotecture" by building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. Garbage Warrior is a timely portrait of a determined visionary, a hero of the 21st century.
