Earth Day at Woodside Farms

Updated: Apr 21, 2023

April is Earth Month, and hanging out at Woodside Farms on Earth Day is a (biode)GREAT(able) way to celebrate!

Why is Earth Day important?

For over 50 years, Earth Day has helped to bring much-needed attention to our largest, yet most fragile home, planet Earth. Over the decades, Earth Day celebrations have brought hundreds of millions of people into fighting for environmental justice, spanning 193 countries. Starting in 1970, the first-ever Earth Day celebration was attended by over 20 million participants across the United States and garnered support for the Clean Air Act, which works to help protect our families from a number of harmful pollutants that can cause asthma and lung disease – especially in children. Today, the Earth Day Network supports all that Earth Day represents year-round with a mission to help all people regardless of race, gender, income, or geography to the human right to a healthy and sustainable environment. From its first celebration back in 1970 to now, Earth Day has created an immense impact. While being celebrated in countries all over the world, Earth Day events bring together more than 1 billion participants every year and help mobilize communities to help all citizens become active members in the effort to help our Earth. Celebrating Earth Day is a great way to pause, reflect, and show Mother Earth a little TLC.
