The Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies at Cal Poly Pomona will host a public Earth Day Festival on Monday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lyle Center, 4105 S. University Drive, Pomona.
Event parking will be at the Cal Poly Pomona Farm Store (4102 S. University Drive). The Earth Day Festival will offer something for everybody. Guests can learn how to incorporate easy sustainability practices at home and in their community including easy ways to grow plants and gardens, use aquaculture, begin composting and reduce waste. The STEAM Mobile will offer children interactive activities in science and engineering.
Experts in the field of regenerative studies, including Dr. James Adams, a Chumash healer and associate professor of pharmacology at USC, will share their knowledge on topics ranging from the healing properties of medicinal plants that can be grown in backyards to sustainable health and beauty care.
Tours of the 16-acre Lyle Center will highlight the sustainable architecture features as well as the natural resources and native plants.
Guests will also be able to sample locally sourced, sustainably grown food and enjoy live music, bocce ball, and giant Jenga. Visitors are encouraged to wear floral or spring-themed clothing to the event to receive a surprise gift.
Through this year’s Earth Day festivities, the Cal Poly Pomona Lyle Center hopes to raise awareness about the educational resources it offers, live more sustainably and celebrate Earth.
