Kids Day at the Market is Here!

Today is the day – It’s our Annual Kids Day at the market, sponsored by Holly Ridge Center. We have so much fun in store for kids of all ages!

Did you know that most living organisms produce waste products that are safely recycled by the ecosphere? Did you also know that humans are the only species that produce unnatural waste (and we produce it in HUGE quantities)? Basically, this means that we humans create lots and LOTS of trash. What do you throw away? Come learn about all the ways trash happens and how we can all be better stewards of our environment!
