Earth Day 2012 is fast approaching and Laguna Beach will be celebrating its first ever Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 21st. Park Avenue, at Pacific Coast Highway and Forest, will be filled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with visitors, vendors and residents who live in Laguna Beach as they converge to learn more about protecting the earth's natural resources and creating a "greener" life. Attendees will enjoy demonstrations and information on urban composting at your Laguna Beach home, rain barrels, solar cooking and power, and organic garden tips. Art projects, including a "Wall of the Future" created by children, guided bike tours of gardens, films on environmental impact and conservation, and green building advice await you, too

Transition Laguna Beach and SEEDS Arts and Education, Inc. are sponsoring this FREE event for the entire family. Complete with an "Eco-Village," "Eco-Expo", and "Eco-Lounge," there will be plenty to do and learn at this event. Find out more by visiting their website here.
