There will be several free workshops offered throughout the day covering yoga, organic gardening, permaculture, green community networking, sustainability, healthy living, and environmental and social justice from professionals in the Philadelphia community. Kids’ activities, plant sharing, and The Food Trust Weekly Farmers’ Market will be among other activities. The flea market offers crafts, clothing, records, jewelry, ethnic arts and crafts, collectibles, great food, and recycled goods of all kinds.

This event is free and open to the public.

"The Uhuru Movement leads the way forward for a program and vision for the future we can all support! The black-community led Uhuru Movement has initiated a collective response to the deep economic crisis that is hitting the African community especially hard. This program is a prototype for creating green sustainable energy, collective gardening and food production, economic self-reliance programs- including a recording studio and licensed community kitchen at the Uhuru house in St. Petersburg, FL- that can be reproduced anywhere in the U.S. and worldwide," says Earth Day Fest organizer Alison Hoehne.
