As this year is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, Memphis is celebrating the whole week thanks to the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy and their sponsors. I just realized we were in the midst of it as a fundraiser gala has already kicked off Earth Week on April 16.
Sanctioned events happening today include the Rhodes College Environmental Film Festival and gardener/writer Felder Rushing at the Memphis Botanic Garden talking about green practices. See more events this week here plus more info on the grand finale event the Down to Earth Festival featuring plenty of live music, art, and food.
