Be sure to pick up a free bag of Agromin's potting soil at
the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival. Hosted by the Community Environmental
Council, the festival takes place over two days--April 22 and 23 at Alameda
Park in Santa Barbara.
Santa Barbara, by accident, was instrumental in the creation
of Earth Day. In 1969, a massive oil spill from an oil platform occurred off
the Santa Barbara coast. It drew nationwide attention to the negative impact of
what humans were doing to the environment. Visiting the area shortly after the
spill was Senator Gaylord Nelson, the founder of Earth Day. Not long after, the
first Earth Day took place in 1970.
