Pacific Grove Earth Day Celebration

April 22, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Sustainable Pacific Grove invites the public to a special public event on Sunday, April 22, from noon to 3 p.m. to celebrate Earth Day 2023.  Earth Day is observed every year on April 22, in honor of John Muir’s birthday.

Members of the community are invited to join this special celebration at the Community Garden, located on 210 Ridge Road near Lighthouse Ave., behind the Pacific Grove Adult School campus – just steps away from the Monarch Grove Sanctuary.  The garden includes 40 individual plots, a Children’s Garden, and two greenhouses.

Volunteers started the garden 11 years ago, under the auspices of Sustainable Pacific Grove. The garden is part of the Pacific Grove Adult School campus and has grown into a verdant and highly productive source of organic vegetables for local families. For the last three years, a large organic salad harvested in the garden is served in the weekly community meals provided by the Al & Friends food program.

Earth Day Program at the Pacific Grove Community Garden

  • 12 noon to 3 pm: Tour of the garden area, with special presentations about creative
    raised bed gardening, succession planting, plants to attract pollinators, and composting
    with live earthworms.
  • 1 to 3 pm: Appalachian Tunes performed by Matt & Lance, two local musicians.
  • 1 to 2 pm: Children’s Garden Hour. Story time, arts & crafts, planting seeds in
    repurposed containers, and Eat Your Veggies food demonstration.

A pilot project to teach food gardening to local families

At the Earth Day Celebration, community garden members will launch a new urban
farming program for Pacific Grove families. PG GROWS HEALTHY will teach local
residents how to plant healthy food in their home gardens.

No matter how small or
shady their available space may be, they can install a productive garden that will
provide a family with organic vegetables throughout the year. The pilot project for PG
GROWS HEALTHY will be offered to five local households who will be mentored by
garden members in monthly hands-on classes. Come to sign up for the project on
Earth Day and win an instant garden, with a planter box, organic soil, and seeds!
