Earth Day at First Unitarian Society

A wonderful kid-friendly community event, combining education, art, food and celebration. Here is a fun opportunity to celebrate Mother Earth, to learn more how to support the environment in realistic practical ways, to see (and buy) the work of creative artists, to add to your garden, dance and try some delicious local food.

The First Unitarian Society of Plainfield, 724 Park Avenue, Plainfield, will host an Earth Day Fair and Craft Show on Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

The fair and craft show will be held indoors in the church’s Parish Hall. Admission is free. The growing list of eco-info vendors include Food and Water Watch New Jersey, Plainfield Animal Adoption and Rescue, Rutgers Extension Master Gardeners, Plainfield Municipal Utility Authority (PMUA) and Wagner Farm Arboretum.

One-of-a-kind upcycled crafts such as jewelry, purses, hair accessories, glass totems and rain barrels will be available for purchase. Natural skin care products, nature photography, essential oils, flower bulbs and hand-crafted holistic snacks will also be on sale.

Guitarist/singer-songwriter Elan Varner and the Marafanyi Drummers will perform live. Chef Brian Bunton of Comfort Kitchen will be selling healthy gourmet wraps and sandwiches as well as signature coffee and teas inside the church’s Stevens Lounge.

Children are invited to join retired educator Judy Fisher in the church’s early ed classroom for a fun-filled day of Earth Day-centric crafts and activities. For more information, contact the First Unitarian Society at (908) 756-0750.
