Earth Day Celebrations and Movie Night

Invite community residents to celebrate “Earth Day” on April 22 with an eco-friendly movie night and other fun activities. The events will help raise awareness among community members about choosing environmentally friendly habits and making the world we live in a better place.

Your movie night event can also be combined with a healthy trail-mix bar, or the Earth Day celebrations can be extended over a few additional days with other earth-friendly activities like planting a community garden or hosting a microgreens growing party.

Eco-friendly Movie Night

The highlight of your event is the eco-friendly movie night for residents! Outdoor movie time is exciting for kids, adults, and senior members of your community.

If you don’t have a large enough outdoor space within your community, the event can be held at a local park. Set up a screen, rent a movie projector, and ask the residents to bring along their own blankets, sheets, rugs, mats, and pillows.

***TIP*** Comfortable chairs can be set up at one side for elderly community members.

Keeping the theme of “Earth Day,” you can also arrange a healthy snacks for residents. For example, a trail-mix bar can be set up for the residents which include dried fruits, nuts, berries, pretzels, and popcorn. Alternatively, put out a salad bar or encourage a salad exchange potluck to reinforce healthy eating habits.

***TIP*** Ask the residents to bring along their own bowls and utensils (instead of disposable) for enjoying their eats during the event.

Planting a Community Garden

Starting a community garden will require some pre-planning and dedication from the community members and staff. Here’s a comprehensive guide to starting a community garden.

Residents and maintenance staff can work together to choose whether they would like to plant fruits, vegetables, herbs, or flowers in the garden…or a combination of all four!

You will need a variety of seeds or seedlings to plant as well as a designated area - ideally located in the center of your community - to plant trees, vegetables, flowers etc. You may want to ask the community residents who have a knack for gardening to come and assist with their knowledge.

Have staff construct raised beds to make the growing, watering, and harvesting process easier on both residents and staff over time.

***BONUS*** Ask residents to bring along their own garden tools, but have some of the basics available to borrow as well.

Remember, a community garden is a long-term investment in your community’s culture and aesthetic, so the more time and attention you put into it in the beginning, the bigger an asset it will be in the future!
