Harvesting hay in the Worthington Valley
April 22, 2014 is Earth Day, and we are off to a beautiful start for the morning and an April shower is expected this afternoon. A great way to top off your Earth Day activities is to take advantage of a special showing on Maryland Public Television tonight of the VPC film: Designing With Nature: The Plan for the Valleys.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, you have an opportunity to view it in the comfort of your home tonight at 10 p.m. Please tune in to learn how Baltimore County has been able to maintain a large rural area just minutes from the Baltimore beltway and the hustle and bustle of urban living. The film includes stunning landscape footage, interviews with local farmers and rural property owners, as well as vintage footage of the colorful environmental planner, Ian McHarg, who spearheaded the Plan for the Valleys back in the early ’60s.
DVDs of the film are available for purchase from the VPC office for $20.
Enjoy the show!
