The St. Agnes Landscape Committee is hosting an Earth Day Event at St. Agnes right outside the Church on Sunday, April 21.

Let’s gather after the 10:30 Mass and celebrate Earth Day!

The theme for Earth Day 2024 is Planet vs. Plastics.

Below is a peek at what will be happening.

We’d love your participation. If you want to help out at this event or if have any questions, contact Scott Hutton: landscape@StAgnesShepherdstown.org or 703.722.4276.

Glass to Sand Demo

Jim King, king of glass recycling, will be there with his glass crushing machine so you can learn about how it works and see it in action. Jim has been collecting glass for St. Agnes since 2021.

Bring a bag of glass (washed, labels can stay on) and take home a 5-pound or 50-lb bag of sand. If you’re interested in purchasing a larger amount of sand, contact Scott Hutton ahead of time.

Find Out What the Landscape Committee is Planning

Talk to members of the St. Agnes Landscape Committee and see the original landscape design, learn about what they are planning, and hear about the Water Mitigation Project.

They welcome new members who can help with various tasks!

Let’s Talk Climate and Environment

Come talk with some local experts about climate and environment issues in WV and the local area.

Lucia Valentine, a lobbyist for West Virginia Environmental Council and West Virginia Field Organizer for Moms Clean Air Force, and Maria Russo, Clean Water Campaign Coordinator, for WV Rivers Coalition. Both Maria and Lucia have experience in environmental advocacy and policy making.

Mini-planting Workshop

Get your hands a little dirty and plant a seed starter to take home. This 10-minute hands-on workshop will be fun for both kids and adults.

Pick up some tips on recycling materials for planting.
Save these items at home to bring to our Earth Day Event: TP rolls, plastic bottles, egg shells.

Healthy Food and Fun Food!

Stop by and have a bite of something healthy or something fun.

We’ll have small bites for sampling some healthy and natural snacks, herbal tea, and foods that remind us of earth day, nature, and the outdoors.

Let’s gather and show our appreciation for Mother Earth and Our Common Home.

Feel free to bring your family and friends.
We look forward to seeing you!
