Earth Day Festival Committee

 The next global Earth Day is April 22, 2024!

Planet vs. Plastics

Our environmental legacy is a testament to the power of collective action, and we are calling upon Riderwood residents to once again join hands in safeguarding our planet. Now, more than ever, we must step up our efforts to combat climate change, protect biodiversity, and preserve our ecosystems in our small part of the planet!

Join the Earth Festival Committee as it renews its fight for a sustainable and thriving future. Come to the meetings at 10:00am in the VSQ Music Room on the following Tuesdays: Nov 14, Jan 9, Jan 23, Feb 13, Feb 27, Mar 12, Mar 26

For questions or suggestions, contact co-chairs Lee Summerville or Karen Sours.  Or just send an email to

Our Riderwood Earth Month campaign focuses on lighting a spark to accelerate change towards a green, prosperous, and equitable future at Riderwood, our small piece of the planet. Human influence is unequivocally to blame for the warming of the Earth.  Overcoming climate change is within our reach if we commit to action to assure our children/grandchildren’s future.

This can only be done if we work TOGETHER to invest in our Earth’s future.  Join our committee to help light that spark!
