Inaugural Earth Day celebration seeks participants
Scheduled for Sunday, April 22,
from 4-7 pm,
HOME is an Earth Day celebration for the
Denison, Granville and Licking County communities. We seek to raise awareness of and
interest in environmental issues, while having fun and offering a local Earth Day event where
there currently is none.

As we move through the planning stages for this inaugural event, we are seeking a variety of
organizations, vendors and other participants–all with an eco-sensibility–to come together in
celebration of our shared home, Earth. We hope to make this family-friendly event an annual
tradition, so we would love your help to make our first experimental year a success.

WHAT: HOME is a community Earth Day celebration, bringing together anyone interested in
sustainability, conservation and the wonders of the natural world. Visitors can expect family fun,
Homestead tours, educational displays, information about local sustainability initiatives, service
projects, a sunset hike, vendors, music and food.
WHEN: Sunday, April 22, 4-7 pm
WHERE: The Denison Homestead, 1385 North Street, Granville, OH 43023
WHO IS INVITED: Denison, Granville and Licking County communities (general public)
EXHIBITOR LOAD-IN: 2:45-3:45 pm
DEFINITION OF PARTICIPATION: Have a table/booth set up on the grounds of the
Homestead. Have a representative/s of your organization available to engage with visitors,
sharing information and/or a family-friendly and eco-conscious activity (craft, game, hands-on
display, demonstration, make/take, etc). Provide signage. Sell goods if applicable.

To reserve a spot for your organization or business as an exhibitor or sponsor,
contact Kim Byce, Homestead Coordinator,
at or 614-537-6126,

If you are unable to participate in a formal capacity, we certainly understand, though we hope you
will support us with your attendance or by sharing news of this event with your social and
professional circles. Sharable promotional material will be distributed closer to the event date.

We envision a true community event, connecting all those among us who are environmentally
conscious and doing important work for the Earth– and for that, we need you! Thanks for your
