Earth Day

Sun, April 23, 2017 | 1-4 pm

Last year, the JCC’s 5th Annual Earth Day Community Celebration sponsored by Citizens Energy Group and Indianapolis Power & Light was a huge hit in a tiny way. Tiny By Design Builders brought an almost 30-foot-long  tiny house with furniture, cabinetry and flooring made of recycled materials. The news of their presence at our community celebration brought out another tiny house, but this one from a builder in our own community. There was also a yurt by Yurts of America, illustrating how we can make a smaller footprint by living more simply.


Also at Earth Day… Returning will be hands-on, environmentally-friendly  activities by 30+ exhibitors and a picnic area (see list of activities below) with live music by Sure Thing on the WTTS stage and food trucks. FREE admission. Voluntary donations welcome.
