The three-day event, which opens at 10 a.m. Friday and runs through 4 p.m. Sunday, will feature more than 50 area landscape and gardening vendors as well as several competitive gardening displays and a photo contest. Admission is $5, and children under age 12 get in free.

Common Dreams - 4/22/2010.
By Jill Schneiderman – In his recent book, The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology (2008), the great Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh asserts that Buddhism, as a robust type of humanism, allows people to learn how to live on our planet not only responsibly, but with compassion and lovingkindness. Every Buddhist practitioner, he says, should have the capacity to “protect” the environment and determine the destiny of the Earth.

Urgenci is an international network based in the south of France.
