Residents can participate in Earth Week this year through many of the local programs and events to be held April 19-23 – and at a spring clean-up on May 14.

Earth Week Storytime is slated for 10:30 a.m. today (April 21) at the Mill Street location of the Orangeville Public Library.

The special storytime features guest readers Councillor Grant Peters who chairs Sustainable Orangeville and Mayor Sandy Brown.

There will be an environmentally-themed activity afterwards. No registration is required.

This program is suitable for children ages five and under.

Meanwhile, “What’s in it for Me” takes places tonight (April 21) from 7-9 p.m. at the Mill Street location of the Orangeville Public Library.

Knowing that it is sometimes hard to connect efforts for the environment to our own happiness, Andrew Welch, a local speaker and writer on value economics, released a book looking at that challenge.

Seven years ago, he released “The Value Crisis” and during the “What’s in it for Me” event taking place tonight he will come connect the dots and show how sustainability actually translates into more joy for you.

A community tree planting event is set for Harvey Curry Par on April 23, starting at 9 a.m.

Join Credit Valley Conservation and Sustainable Orangeville at the Earth Day Tree Planting. This family-friendly event offers participants the opportunity to support their community, learn the benefits of trees and help make a difference in the watershed.

For safety reasons, participants are being asked to dress for the weather, wear long pants, socks, and closed-toed shoes

Register today if you’re interested in attending the event. Online registration and COVID-19 screening are required:

Meanwhile, the seed library is available at the Mill Street branch of the Orangeville Public Library for those interested in picking up free seeds for their gardens.
