Artists, entertainment and green gurus from all over Utah! Come learn and play! To find out more about this amazing place you can find them at: http://www.ogdennaturecenter.org/
We did have a great time this year. Usually I take a ton of fun pictures to share with everyone but this year we had rain and lots of it. So I would set up the booth and then pull everything into the middle again as the rain started again. I did not even think about pictures until it was over and I was taking my tent down…a duh moment! So all pictures in this post are from facebook or google. It was a brilliantly beautifully day because of the rain. It was cool and refreshing and I am so grateful for my good friend Athena from Simply Eden Goat Milk Soap. She let us borrow two of her extra tent sides so we did not get anything ruined (why we did not bring our own on a day like this could be added to the duh moments…lol). We love her and adore all of her amazing products! You can find her at: http://www.SimplyEden.com
Yes, these soaps, oils and lotions smell and feel as good as they look!!
She raises her own goats and they are so cute. She brought them out to the Earth Day Celebrations and all the kids loved them! We went out to her house a few weeks ago and had so much fun playing with her goats and their babies. Future pictures to of that.
Tonight we are going to go and help clean up the Earth. One of our very favorite local shops, Green The World, is hosting this amazing event. Here is what they have to say about it on facebook:

One of the reasons that I started my own business was to be able to donate and give to causes I believe in. I for sure believe in helping the Earth so we have donated some fun items to tonight’s get together.
This weekend we will be participating with Earth Jam down in Salt Lake City. This is always a fun event with amazing music, great artists and of course the coolest people to come and see everything. Here is what they have to say on facebook: Earth Jam Productions is a non-profit organization that comes together every April in celebration of Earth Day. Our annual Festival is held in Liberty Park located in Salt Lake City, UT. We offer a variety of different activities that all help educate on bettering the environment and bringing people and community’s together. Earth Jam is a FREE FAMILY EVENT
The music of Earth Jam is the heart of the organization. We have 2 stages The Earth Stage, The Fire Stage, that we fill with local talent, performing arts, and speakers
