CCC celebrates Earth Day with annual farmer's market

CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - It's the one-stop-shop for Earth Day festivities.

Corning Community College celebrating the holiday with its annual farmers' market. 

More than a dozen environmentally friendly organizations throughout the community shared advice on green alternatives. Organizations stressed the importance of protecting local watersheds, preserving animal populations, and partnering with nearby farmers.

"With some of our students, they might not realize that we have these really great farmers' markets and may feel a little timid about going to the farmers' market," Biology Professor at Corning Community College, Donna Powers said. "But coming here, in this smaller environment, they can meet some of the farmers and talk to them, and get connected to where our food comes from and those individuals."

Students were encouraged to develop relationships with the organizations and get involved with them outside of school.
