Local Earth Day Events
Sustainable Contra Costa invites you to the following events!
Family Harvest Farm Volunteer Workday
Headlands Brewing Earth Day Event
We are so excited to announce Headlands has joined 1% For The Planet and has committed to donating at least 1% of all sales to non-profit organizations focused on the environment.
To celebrate they will be hosting an Earth Day event on Friday, 4/22 starting at 12pm! There will be live music (3-6pm), a pop up shop by Resourcefill (3-6pm), smash burgers on the outdoor grill (all day), and we will be releasing a very special trailblazer series beer alongside East Bay Regional Parks called Briones.
In addition to the 1%, we will be donating 10% of all sales for the day to East Bay Regional Parks as well as $1 per 4-pack of Briones cans sold.
It’s going to be a lot of fun. Come hang out with us and help support our parks!
