As gatekeepers of our planet, let’s celebrate Mother Earth by nurturing nature and art at the Day on the Green at the Village, April 29.

This Earth Day Celebration offers a perfect opportunity to explore ways to live a life in balance with our planet and promote our personal health and well-being. 

You can expect an inspiring day filled with Art, Music and Green organizations with information to educate about environmental, social and animal causes.

Harley with his paintingsThis festival is a fundraiser for LandPath’s, who creates ways for people to experience the beauty, understand the value, and assist in healing the land in our local communities.

The art show and sale features award winning artists and craftspeople and will be juried this year by Master Artist Rik Olson. This year’s Lifetime Art Achievement Award will honor a Sonoma County Art icon, Harley. Some of his multidisciplinary Art will be on display and for sale in tribute to his life and Artist’s journey. 

The Eco Artists of Mendocino will be participating in the Art Show this year promoting their desire to contribute to the preservation of the coastal environment, the mountains, rivers and shores and all the living things, which call it home.

Artist Julie Higgins (cover artist for this April Gazette) will be displaying her story telling pastels that push through the mundane of life into the magic and connects her to her sense of nature. Copperfield Books will be promoting Julie’s book,“Illuminated Heart, Love Songs from a Zen Romantic” during the show with her co-author Joe Pulichino.

The Sasha Smith Band is headlining the event, taking the stage at noon. Born in rural Sonoma County, Sasha started playing piano early on and was known around town as that scrawny kid who plays boogie- woogie piano and apprenticed with Tom Waits. Sasha is a LA keyboardist, songwriter and composer for Emmy winning and Grammy nominated projects.

The Bike Coalition will be onboard to explain bicycle safety and education. The Latin Fusion Dance Troupe will grace the dance floor during music breaks with their sexy salsa rhythms.Community Heals will share their mission’s focus on health education and self-care to empower people to make sustainable healthier lifestyle choices for their bodies, minds and spirits. 

Birds of a Feather Rescuewill have their tropical birds at the festival to meet and greet you. Their non-profit rescues unwanted, mistreated, improper cared for and injured birds and focuses on providing the best care and adoption homes for them. Additionally, the Sinkyone Animal Sanctuary can tell you how you can get involved with their “save our animals” mission. They daily feed and houses over 70 animals, which have been rescued from euthanasia, abuse or slaughter.
