We've had only a few April showers, but there's still time for May flowers ... and vegetables.
If you want to exercise your green thumb, drop by Saturday's farmers market at Marin Country Mart in Larkspur, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Look for the Larkspur-Corte Madera Patch banner and I'll be there handing out free seeds and helping you plant them.
The farmers market is really getting into the Earth Day swing with music, games, an introduction into backyard chickens, eco-focused crafts and even a cookbook swap. And don't miss the screening of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.
Marin County is going all out to celebrate Earth Day this weekend. Here are some other events on Saturday, April 21:
• Earth Day Marin returns and will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Civic Center Park and will include performances, like world music act Zulu Spear, speakers on environmental issues, such as Andrew Mellen, author of Unstuff Your Life, and popular kids activities, like the smoothie bike.
• The Marin Municipal Water District is seeking volunteers to remove French broom from Pine Point. Meeting location is at the Lake Lagunitas parking lot at 9 a.m. REI will be providing killer swag and raffle prizes!
