Happy Earth Day!

I thought that today would be the perfect day to follow up with the outcomes of this weekend's two Earth Day Celebrations! The first event was Dig In! which is a forum that was held at Marbles Museum to promote the idea of community gardening in Wake County. Dig In! was a tremendous success! It was great to see so many folks out and about to support Wake County's community gardening system. I have high hopes that we will continue to see more community gardens start throughout Raleigh and Wake County!

The second event was the annual Earth Day Celebration! This even was also a tremendous success. There were all kinds of fun events for people of all ages to enjoy. I have posted a few pictures from the Earth Day Celebration! Please remember to do your part to reduce, reuse, and recycle!

As always, I will continue working to uphold my personal values of environmental stewardship along with the official City council mission statement:
  • We are a 21st Century City of Innovation focusing on environmental, cultural and economic sustainability.
  • We conserve and protect our environmental resources through best practices and cutting edge conservation and stewardship, land use, infrastructure and building technologies.
