Asheville Greenworks Invites You To The Orange PeelBy
Cribbed directly from the Earth Day Asheville website.Â The Gordon Smith for City Council campaign is a sponsor for Wednesday’s event, and there will be GSfCC volunteers there to let know how you can get involved.Â We must not miss our opportunity to become a full-fledged leader in greening the nation.
“Earth Day Asheville, a concert event presented by Clear Channel Radio and Greenlife Grocery, will be a music and dance party for everyone to celebrate our clean and green future in support of Asheville GreenWorks, the local Keep America Beautiful affiliate.Â The concert, which will raise funds for earth-friendly projects, is scheduled for April 22 from 7:00-11:00p.m. at the Orange Peel.Â Tickets are available at the Orange Peel website and at the door.
Asheville GreenWorks hosted the first Earth Asheville Concert event in 2008 with a Battle of the Bands contest and fashion show. Building on last yearâ€™s success, this yearâ€™s event seeks to continue to energize a diverse group of people about Earth Day. â€œWe are hoping this event will draw attention to the need for every one of us to get involved in preserving our natural resources,â€ said Susan Roderick, executive director of Asheville GreenWorks.
Asheville GreenWorks, formerly known as Quality Forward, celebrated its 35th Anniversary last year of working for a Clean & Green Asheville and Buncombe County. The organization has been instrumental in enhancing Ashevilleâ€™s natural beauty and quality of life by planting thousands of trees, beautifying city gateways and neighborhoods, picking up tons of litter from our streets and waterways, and promoting recycling and waste management.”
