Arkansas Earth Institute recognizes its volunteers

Arkansas Earth Institute plans to recognize the contributions of its volunteers at its 3rd annual fall event to be held with The Root Cafe on Thursday evening, Oct 29 at 6 pm. Since 2006, more than 400 people have participated in its discussion courses offered by volunteer organizers.  The discussion courses have stimulated thought-provoking conversation and prompted individuals to make life-style changes in their eating, driving and consumption habits and encouraged others to become more involved in the community. Come hear how AEI has inspired Arkansans to take responsibility for Earth. Then stay for food, music and fun. Featuring live music by Woody Pines and dancing with the Arkansas Country Dance Society. Delicious soups made with local ingredients and hot apple cider will be served. Bring a sweet or savory bread or dessert to share. $10 suggested donation ($25 for family).This is a zero waste event so please bring your own mug and spoon. Location: Bernice Sculpture Garden at the corners of 14th and Main Street.
