Don't Forget Earth Day at The Garden this Saturday April 19

April 19, 1-4pm
Why is Earth Day a Pirate’s favorite holiday?
Because it is all about the 3 Rs!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle !
The City of Decatur, in partnership with the Wylde Center, will be holding its annual Decatur Earth Day Festival (DEDF) on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 1-4 p.m. at the Oakhurst Garden at the corner of Oakview and South McDonough, Decatur.
