- Root for the home team during Boston University’s Eco Olympics.
You’ve heard of the Olympics and the Special Olympics, but the Eco Olympics? That’s right. The Eco Olympics are here in full speed this week as its key players involve themselves with “Competing for Team Earth.” After all, it’s Earth Week. When would be a more opportune time to root for the home team? The Boston University-based concept materializes in a long list of events and at-home activities for the eco-minded.

Though Forest Lakes, Virginia may not be on your map, its Farmers Market starts for the season on Wednesday, April 20th. From then through September, the Tuesday evening market will feature local produce, animal products, and home-baked goods.
When you put the Eco Olympics and the Farmers Market together, you (kind of, sort of) get the EcoMarket. In Charlottesville, Virginia on Thursday, April 22nd, a farmers market in celebration of Earth Week will occur right on Grounds at the University of Virginia. A second level of fusion will be the connection between the local community and the students of the University. As we know, one of the major purposes of acting locally is to engage with, learn from, and invest in those around us. This week, let’s fully make that mission our own.
