Spring has officially sprung in Harlem, and as the flowers bloom and grass gets greener, we are reminded of how important it is to take care of our environment. This coming Sunday, April 22 is Earth Day, a day in which events are held worldwide in order to increase awareness and appreciation of the global environment.
This year, Harlem Park to Park, a Central Harlem community improvement organization and merchants’ association, has organized their first-ever Earth Day initiative on April 22 to coincide with Global Earth Day! An all-day event, Harlem Earth Day will include a number of fun and educational family friendly activities to promote the Earth Day mission of increasing awareness of environmental issues, including: Green Energy Use, Recycling, Clean Air, etc.
Activities will be taking place at Morningside Park, Marcus Garvey Park, Central Park, Aloft Hotel, and many local Harlem businesses. Families can enjoy yoga classes with Land Yoga, gardening demonstrations with Harlem Flo, arts and crafts projects, live music and much more!
