Throughout the year, the Town of Cary organizes numerous free environmental outreach events to make it fun and easy to learn more about living green in Cary. There's an event for every interest and every season!
Give back to your community! Help prepare the soil at our newly opened urban agriculture and historic site, Good Hope Farm. With a goal of connecting needy families to healthy foods, bring one nonperishable food item each to be donated to a local food pantry. Be prepared to get dirty! Coordinated by the Town of Cary Spruce program. Volunteers age 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Help us keep Cary clean and green by signing up for the Spring Litter Sweep! Volunteers work as a team to remove litter from Cary streets, parks, and public areas. This event occurs at a variety of locations across Cary. Registration is required.
Order your own home compost bin at below wholesale cost so you can turn your kitchen scraps into organic fertilizer. Want to learn more about how to compost at home? Join us for our free Compost Giveaway Workshops for tips and tools to get started.
Join us for the perennial favorite Friends of Page-Walker Herbfest, held rain or shine on the beautiful grounds of the Page-Walker Arts & History Center. Visitors will have the opportunity to find out how to start their own herb garden while touring the Anne B. Kratzer Educational Garden, including a close-up look at the historic 1850s Page smokehouse.
These outdoor workshops cover tips and techniques for home gardening, urban agriculture, making your own compost at home, historical farming practices, and much more. Participants will receive three bags of compost, two home guide books full of composting and gardening tips, and 30 minutes of instruction with a compost expert. Open to Town of Cary residents only.
Help us keep Cary clean and green by signing up for the Fall Litter Sweep! Volunteers work as a team to remove litter from Cary streets, parks, and public areas. This event occurs at a variety of locations across Cary. Registration is required.
Would you like to plan your own environmental service event or join us for an existing project? Volunteer with our Spruce Program to reduce litter and beautify our community. We've got the tools if you've got the time!
