ALEXANDRIA — The "Love the Earth" event in Alexandria this Saturday, April 23, will be moved indoors.

A full slate of events, which start at noon and continue until 3 p.m., will take place at the First Congregational Church, 221 7th Ave. W. in Alexandria. Use the door on Elm Street.

"It’s all the fun without the grass — and rain and wind and cold," said Barbara Benson, one of the organizers of the event.

The compost distribution will still be at Big Ole Central Park. Compost is being bagged for sale by Luther Crest volunteers and area Boy Scouts. The compost was created from materials generated from the local organics recycling program.

“Love the Earth,” which is taking place the day after Earth Day is being put on by Alexandria Area Indivisible with participation from a number of organizations such as the Douglas County Lakes Association, the Audubon Society and the Citizens for a Sustainable Future.


The event will feature music, food from Smokin’ Brews and ‘Ques Food Truck, informational booths and a family-friendly atmosphere, according to organizers.

Information booths include Citizens for a Sustainable Future, Pope/Douglas Solid Waste, Audubon Society, Alexandria Area Indivisible, and the Douglas County Lakes Association.
