First annual ‘Celebrate Our Earth at FENCE’

Published 9:30am Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Our Earth can use a little help from her friends, and Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) will provide that help on May 4, 2013 from 1-5 p.m. at the FENCE Center in Tryon. The first annual Celebrate Our Earth at FENCE family fun day features entertainment, earth friendly businesses and organizations, free food, free pet adoptions, free tote bags and water bottles, animals and much more.

Our community can learn simple things we all can do to keep our piece of paradise green and growing, reduce trash, protect our water and air and care for the land during this new event sponsored by the Kirby Endowment of the Polk County Community Foundation.

Local environmental businesses and speakers will enlighten, music, storytelling, magic and movies will entertain, animals will enchant and area producers and providers will treat everyone to locally sourced food and drinks.
