Poultney students welcome community to be enlightened at Earth Fair on Earth Day

Wednesday, April 22 at 2 p.m. — POULTNEY — Poultney High School will host the 8th annual Poultney Earth Fair on Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22 from 2 to 5 p.m. The theme this year, chosen by Poultney’s seventh grade class, is “Global Changes, Our Actions.” Explore how small changes in our daily behavior can evolve into a global transformation capable of sustaining all the people on Earth. As in past years, the fair will offer a variety of educational activities focused on the theme. The goal is to work with and motivate the next generation of leaders to be solution-seekers.

Over 60 exhibitors have prepared interactive demonstrations and activities to showcase what individuals can do to make their communities a better place to live. Experience live music, 10-minute bike tune-ups by Tim Johnson, art activities, the cool laser-hunting demo, and exciting information about solar and energy efficiency innovations.

The popular scavenger hunt returns, wherein participants are invited to visit and learn at five booths and then choose from prizes, such as an herb plant from Second Nature Herbs or tie-dying their own t-shirts.

This year, the Earth Fair will kick off with a parade starting at the Green Mountain College circle at 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to join.  Arriving at Poultney High School, there will be treats prepared by LiHigh School and GMC’s Food Justice class, plus NOFA VT’s famous organic brick oven pizza.
