In addition to the 9th District Community Cleanup from 8:30-Noon (meet at the Kroger on lower Brownsboro Road), there are several sustainability events on Saturday, April 13th.
The Mighty Kindness Earth Day Hoot brings together local services for the body, soul, heart and mind that make our commonwealth more rooted and kind. It is a free community unity festival that celebrates kindness where you’ll find local food, music, art, green businesses, neighborhood and social justice organizations, fun for kids, the healing arts, the spiritual community, free workshops, Massage-a-thon, Circle of Dance, Turners Circus, and more! The Hoot will take place at the Brown-Forman Amphitheater at Waterfront Park from Noon-6pm on April 13th. Learn more here.
At the Mighty Kindness Hoot the Frankfort Avenue Tree Canopy Project will be raising money for the 2013 fall planting by offering a Massage-a-Thon event with the Louisville School of Massage. All donations are tax-deductible. If you have questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also on April 13, YERT: Your Environmental Road Trip Screening and Party: A fundraiser for the Green Institute with food trucks, music, beer, and Q&A with the film’s director at the BBC Brewery/Tap Room at 636 E. Main Street. $10 Suggested Donation. Starts at 6:00 pm with the movie screening at 7:30 pm.

Finally, on April 13: St. Leonard Environmental Club Recycling Event in the Saint Leonard Community parking lot, 440 Zorn Avenue, from 8:00 a.m. to Noon. This year’s sponsors include Commonwealth Computer Recycling (CCR) – items taken include obsolete electronic equipment (computers, scanners, copiers, fax machines, game systems, cell phones, spent ink cartridges) and DDC of Kentucky to shred all your important documentation (papers, folders, ID’s, credit cards, etc.) Once again, there is NO COST for disposal – all they ask for is that each person dropping items donate something listed on the Kentucky Humane Society Wish List. All items collected will be responsibly recycled and not end up in landfills! Questions please contact Kim James at 897-5265 or email email@example.com.
