​Community Earth Day Celebration at GovPorch

Britt Clampitt


GovPorch, winner of KaBOOM!’s Play Everywhere Challenge, has reimagined the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center Plaza as a fun, interactive space, where people of all ages want to spend time, exercise their minds and bodies and enjoy their surroundings.

So there’s no better place to celebrate spring, learn about Charlotte’s efforts to steward natural resources well, and learn about applying green practices to daily life.

You are invited to the City of Charlotte’s Earth Day Celebration at GovPorch, 600 E. Fourth Street, on Friday, April 20, from 1-3 p.m.

Representatives from 17 organizations across Charlotte – city departments and community groups –will teach residents about sustainability topics and practices such as simple composting, alternative transportation options, water condensation filtration, pollinator plants, recycling, and much more. Many demonstrations will be hands-on and all will be family-friendly. 

It promises to be a great day. The Otis Band will perform live while attendees can enjoy a number of food trucks, King of Pops, family activities and giveaways for everyone. Bring your electronic waste to recycle. No TVs or CRT monitors. 

You do not need to register for this event. Just show up, have fun and learn something new about sustainability!
