The grand community event will take place on the Village Green at Oso Viejo Park, nestled near the Norman P. Murray Community Center at 24932 Veterans Way.
Volunteers of all ages are sought to participate in the annual planting activity, which takes place from 8 to 10 a.m., and to assist with overall event activities during the Artes de la Vida and Earth Day Celebration. The City’s free celebration takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Earth Day Expo includes green-living products, methods and exhibits that promote a “green” lifestyle and techniques to help the public become better stewards of the environment and land. Art aficionados and novices alike will be captivated by the Artes Village – a creative journey taking the community on a timeline of art, its forms and periods along with vivid sculpture, dance and photography.
Residents who are interested in participating in the annual planting activity or assisting during the community event can visit the City’s Web site at www.cityofmissionviejo.org (click on 2009 Artes de la Vida) to fill out a participant’s volunteer application.
Participants and the public will also have the opportunity to support local food banks in Orange County by bringing canned goods to the free event.
