April 19: See ‘everyday ways’ to help the Earth

Wooster’s Scarlet, Gray and Green Fair is back.

The free public festival, whose theme is “Green Is for Life!” is April 19 at OARDC.

The Earth Week event is a celebration of ways to be sustainable, whether at home, on the farm, in the garden or in business, said co-organizer Laura Chapin, who’s a research associate in the Department of Horticulture and Crop Science.

About 50 exhibitors and vendors will showcase their green-related products, efforts and services. Everyone’s welcome to attend.

“The exhibitors and vendors will remind people of easy, everyday ways to help the Earth,” Chapin said.

“There are small changes and big changes that we can make to protect our environment,” she said, “and we hope that the people who come to the fair will take that information home with them and pass it along to their friends.”

The fair’s previous edition, in 2014, drew about 2,000 people.
