AN EVENING OF EDUCATION AND INSPIRATION
In celebration of Earth Day, the historic Newtown Theatre is partnering with local environmental groups to present a special movie screening and panel discussion on Saturday, April 22 at 7 PM.
The night will begin with a screening of several short environmental documentaries, including “Wild in the Garden State,” which follows a New Jersey couple who turned their suburban lawn into a beautiful ecological garden.
Following the short documentaries, a panel of experts will discuss the following topics:
Becoming a Greener Consumer
Greening Your Food Dollars
Re-wilding Your Backyard
Shifting to Renewable Energy
The panel will be moderated by WHYY’s Marty Moss-Coane, and attendees will walk away with changes they can make in their own lives to improve the health of the world around us – in our homes, our towns, and the planet.
Panelists will include:
Phil Coleman from aFewSteps.org
Faran Savitz from PennEnvironment
Alisa Shargorodsky, founder and CEO of ECHO Systems, a circular model for reuse in grocery, restaurant, and event spaces
Mary Anne Borge, a naturalist and instructor at Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve, a Pennsylvania master naturalist, and editor of Butterfly Gardener
Newtown Township, Newtown Borough and Wrightstown Township Environmental Advisory Councils; the Bucks County Audubon Society at Honey Hollow; Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve; Bucks County Foodshed Alliance; Wrightstown Farmers Market; Bucks County Ready for 100; The Heritage Conservancy; and PennEnvironment
