Better Farm Partners with Natural Market for Earth Day Festivitiies

Children paint trees at the betterArts booth during Mustard Seed's annual Earth day event.
Better Farm and betterArts on Saturday shared information about upcoming programming, sustainability education, and arts outreach with the community—while doing arts 'n' crafts with children—at the Mustard Seed Natural Market's Seventh Annual Earth Day Event.

The event featured free samples, eco-friendly and handmade items for sale, product giveaways, fresh food, and local exhibitors. Better Farm had a table set up at the event all day, with activities for kids sponsored by betterArts. 

In addition, the Mustard Seed ran a Recycling for Charities drive to benefit betterArts. Electronics donated will be recycled—and will support betterArts initiatives in the community.

Many thanks to Katie Youngs for setting up the event! Here are a few photos from the day:
