Stanley Deming Park

Earth Day Festival featuring Treecycle & Too Good To Toss Hosted by Wickham Works. Now in its 3rd year, our very popular collaborative, community art project, Treecycle, is partnering with Sustainable Warwick’s free recycling event, Too Good To Toss, under the banner of Warwick Earth Day Festival. It will be held in Stanley Deming Park on Sunday, April 22nd, 10 AM-4 PM, and will culminate in an Illuminated Forest Walk at 7 PM through the completed sculptures. With the help of local guest artists, the public is invited to create tree sculptures using “art supplies” salvaged from the waste stream. While turning trash into treasure, participants learn about the importance of reducing their environmental footprint, how waste can be reused in fun and creative ways, and why we should bother to recycle. In addition to multiple hands-on making opportunities for all ages–fairy houses, light-up bugs on sticks, patch screen printing and more–there will be vendors selling goods made from repurposed material, an Eco Raffle, and live music.
