Earth Day coincides with Day 7 of the Conservation Challenge, and also Good Friday!
I’ve been off-line for the past few nights in order to earn my “electronics-free night” points. It’s been quite nice, having some extra motivation to avoid wasting time flipping through channels or absently surfing sites.
Yesterday I arrived at school at the same time as one of my students, who rolled in on her bike, together with her dad. So nice to see! I commended her and told her I hoped the bike-riding would continue once the “points” are gone. We have so many bike racks in front of our school, and sadly they are so rarely used.
I attended another “green event” last night at the Evergreen Brick Works. I’d been meaning to visit this market for years and somehow never managed to get myself there. Walking in I again felt that “coming home” feeling similar to how I feel every year at the Green Living Show. I’m looking forward to returning to visit the Farmer’s Market which takes place on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm.
