Spring is coming and along with it – a lot of opportunities to do what we signed on to do as Master Gardeners; educate Ellis County citizens on scientifically/researched based horticultural principles. Here’s a very good opportunity to do that and we’re asking for volunteers to respond. Ferris will have their Earthday Festival on April 27 from 10 am to 2 pm and we have been invited to have a rent-free booth that day.
About the Event: The Earthday festival started about 10 years ago as a grassroots effort to clean the community. Over the years it has grown to include sharing metropolitan ideas about recycling and reusing items to the small rural town of Ferris, TX. Eventually we hope to reach the entire county. Every year, the vendor and public participation has grown. This event is put together by a multilevel cooperation between waste management, Ferris ISD and the city of Ferris.
