Earth Day at Woodside Farms

As we begin to welcome more sunlight hours back into our lives, we have been busy shaking off the winter and getting ready to kick-off another wonderful growing season. One of our favorite ways to do this is by hosting a farm-favorite event, Earth Day! A little extra sun, rain, birds, and flowers all mean that springtime is here again. This beautiful rotation of natural gifts from the Earth reminds us to take a moment to give back to our local and global community. Earth Day, and spring in general, is a great time to show Mother Earth a little TLC. Whether you volunteer with a local cleanup organization like invasive plant removal or a trash pick up, or you plant a tree in your own backyard, it’s important to start local and support your community. That’s one reason why we’re so excited to be bringing some of our favorite local vendors to the farm. Keeping things local means you’re getting the freshest, highest-quality items from people who are dedicating personal time, money, and energy into limiting their impact on the Earth. We could all benefit from a little re-focusing on the local options and opportunities in our own communities. Have a loved one’s birthday, anniversary, or graduation coming up? Stock up on meaningful gifts that show you care while also enjoying fresh produce options from Woodside, a farm-fresh meal, and live music at our Earth Day event on Saturday, April 23rd from 10 am-2 pm.

The following vendors will also be here!

Rhoda’s Flora

Rhoda’s Flora owner, Natalie Berck, is a fixture at local makers’ markets around Richmond. We’re so excited that she’ll be bringing plants along with handmade plant-themed gifts to Woodside Farms’ Earth Day celebration this year.
