We strive to make NarbEarth Day trash-free, so we won’t be selling bottled water, non-compostable food containers, or non-recyclable drink containers.
Come on foot or ride your bicycle: a free bike valet will look after your wheels.
Remember, NarbEarth Day gets underway at noon on Saturday, May 6, in Narberth Park, right next to the Narberth Community Library.
