Elizabethtown Community and Technical College and Hardin County Earthcare Collaborative will together present Earth Fair 2014 "Tomorrow's Earth is Today's Responsibility," on Thursday, April 10. The entire event and all activities are free and open to the public.
The mission of the Earth Fair, which is a collaboration between the college and community-based Earthcare Collaborative, is to create a community and college event to present "earth-friendly" products, services, technologies and practices and to encourage their adoption and use. The event emphasis is on sustainable practices with community and college booths/exhibits staffed from noon until 6:30 p.m. There will be programs and activities such as sustainable construction methods, energy efficient vehicles display, and a film “The Earth from Above,” showing from 3 – 5 p.m. in Room 212 of the Regional Postsecondary Center. All exhibits and activities will center around the Regional Postsecondary Center on the Elizabethtown Campus.
