Earth Day Festival & Fix-It Fair

Both events are being held in tandem on April 20

On Saturday, April 20, Island Pacific School and Regenerative Bowen Island will celebrate Earth Day by holding an Earth Day festival and Fix-It Fair.

The festival will include stations where visitors can explore a multitude of ways for people to be kinder to the Earth. There will be tours of our pollinator and vegetable garden as well as our hydroponic food tower and indoor honeybee hive.

There will be stations for people to plant seeds and bring home their own pollinator-friendly flowers, information on nature-based carbon sequestration methods, an Ocean-debris art display and activities, displays of student’s upcycling projects, and opportunities to learn about fast fashion and upcycling clothing solutions.

We will have a special guest from “Our Social Fabric” - an organization in Vancouver that collects and resells waste materials from large industries to teach people about creative solutions to reducing waste. We hope to add further activities in the coming weeks.

The festival will also include the very popular Fix-it Fair where people can bring in their broken electronics, jewelry and other items, as well as clothing that needs repair.

The event will run from 11 am to 3 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
