The 35th Annual Farm and Forest Festival, set for Saturday, April 20 at Morningside Nature Center, will help celebrate Earth Day with a focus on the sustainable opportunities we have in our community, neighborhood and home.

Enjoy food, music, demonstrations, environmental displays and activities, live animals, guided walks and talks and horse-drawn wagon rides at this year's festival, which will place special emphasis on historical people and practices that help balance today's modern trappings.

Admission to the festival, which will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 20, is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages three to 12. Admission is free for children under three.

Morningside Nature Center is located at 3540 E. University Ave., three miles east of downtown Gainesville.
