Saturday April 26th – Mount Hope Farm Celebrates Earth Day
Join the Mount Hope Farm 4H Club for a coastal cleanup in honor of Earth Day. Register at the Mount Hope Farm table to pickup your map and clean up assignment. Table information will include fun interactive displays on how YOU can help keep the Mount Hope Farm (and the Planet) clean and healthy. Dip your hands into our colorful paints and add your handprint to our new recycle and trash bins for use on our trails. Then join us for a beautiful walk along the trails and shores, picking up as we go! We’ll be dedicating our new Trail-Trash Bins at the close of clean up and want YOU in the picture. All kids participating will receive a Certificate of Service and an organic re-useable string bag to take home! This MHF event is sponsored by a RI Department of Environmental Management Grant.
Learn some fun “stuff” about how trash impacts the world around us- Get your hands dirty in our “decorate the Trail Trash Bin sign in”! Walk along the water and see Spring arrive- See something that doesn’t belong there? Put it in your trash bag and get it OFF the trail! Pose for our Group Shots and be a part of keeping Mount Hope Farm clean!
