40 Years of Earth Day, 20 Consecutive Earth Fairs of Success
Written by Plant With Purpose on April 20, 2010 in General
Last Tuesday I blogged about the excitement of the coming event at Balboa Park for Earth Day. Well, I’ve got some great news! Our 20th year at the Balboa Park Earth Fair was the most successful year yet… BY FAR! The event boasted 65,000 people who attended this year, hundreds upon hundreds of whom came by the Plant With Purpose booth to interact with any one of our 15 awesome volunteers. Hundreds came to learn just what Plant With Purpose is all about and each one learned about this great local organization that has been preaching and practicing sustainable living and community development for 25 years! What a great venue for Plant With Purpose to reach out to so many with the message of our international work. People were wonderfully receptive to our message and were really energized to plant a tree for a buck, buy a t-shirt or a bag of coffee, or slap an awesome ‘Plant Hope’ removable tattoo on their kids or significant others!
