More Than a Day

The annual green celebration highlights Santa Fe's eco-consciousness

On the calendar, Earth Day is April 22. But in Santa Fe, the events planned throughout the week highlight environmentalism’s deep roots in the community all year round.


With activities that range from seed exchanges to local energy talks to trash pickup to beekeeping movies, this week’s Earth Day events are focused on practical applications, many of which are growing in popularity and impact.


Throughout this issue, SFR highlights opportunities for Santa Feans to jump into new endeavors, whether it’s through green building, climate change activities or harvesting rainwater. Not sure where to focus your environmental spirit? Perhaps art or books will help lead the way.


So how are you spending Earth Day/Week/Year?
