The Nature Institute on Levis Lane in Godfrey will host the first ever Riverbend Earth Day event Saturday April 14 from 10am-4pm. There will be folk and bluegrass music, make-it and take-it workshops for adults and kids, and a couple of local mechanics who have converted their personal vehicles from gasoline to electric.
There will also be a display set up by Sun Ministries. Organizer Ann Bromaghim says they are a group from North St. Louis that is putting together a social enterprise that will teach skills to people in that area in hopes they will use that knowledge to start their own business.
She says there will also be plastic pot recycling, clothing swaps and textile collection. There will also be four films shown in the Talahi Lodge beginning at 10. Those are "Turning the Tide," "Power Shift," "So Right, So Smart," and "Awakening the Dream." For more information on the event, call 551-5020.
