In addition to exploring the musical world of secondhand treasure and found object invention, Westgate Earth Night participants can attend a "Backyard Farm to Fork" gardening demonstration hosted by Master Gardener Nora Boyer and farmer "Grandpa Jim," where they'll learn how to grow local, better-tasting, low-carbon footprint produce.

Also, be sure to "Ask Mrs. Green Jeans" for her best earth-friendly advice, enjoy Earth-friendly arts and crafts projects, learn how to make "plarn" -- plastic yarn -- and turn plastic grocery bags into sleeping mats for the homeless and have your family photo taken in front of the Northwest suburb's largest ball o' plastic bags.
