Helen and Antonia want you to know: Northfield’s Earth Day Celebration is Saturday, April 28

Officially, Earth Day 2012 was yesterday, April 22. But in Northfield, it’s being celebrated this coming Saturday, April 28, noon to 5 on Union Street between Third and Fourth Streets (outside First United Church).

Last week, Transition Northfield volunteer Mary Jo Cristofaro managed to convince two Northfield High School students, Helen and Antonia, to get up really early and meet me at my GBM corner office for a photo with the 2012 Northfield Earth Day Celebration poster (PDF).

For details, see Mary Jo’s Northfield.org blog post, Earth Day Celebration to Include Several Free Workshops and Transition Northfield’s Earth Day page.

See my Northfield Earth Day photo album slideshows from 2011 and 2010.
