Charlottesville Earth Week
Charlottesville Earth Week is a celebration of Earth Week held in Charlottesville.
Charlottesville Earth Week was started by Bobbi Collyer, Lonnie Murray and Tatyanna Patten in Fall 2001 as a project by the NatureSpirit group at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Church-UU as a celebration of Earth Day. The first event was GaiaFair, a small one-day eco-fair featuring no more than 12 environmental groups held on April 20, 2002 in Lee Park in Downtown Charlottesville. Since then, it has grown in size and public interest to become a sponsored event of both the City of Charlottesville and the County of Albemarle. In 2010, the Earth Week Eco-fair was held on April 18, at the Charlottesville Pavilion.
