Columbia Earth Day

Earth Day in Columbia, Missouri

Every year, The Peace Nook coordinates a huge Earth Day Festival in downtown Columbia near Peace Park. It has over 200 booths full of information about how to "green up your lifestyle" and experts in solar, gardening, and sustainability, and even had food trucks, workshops, and performances throughout the day!

This was our first time having a booth at Earth Day (and was also our first ever booth at a festival!), and we are thrilled to share that we won first place in the business category for the Eco-Awareness Contest for having the best educational display and learning activities! With this being our first year, this was completely unexpected and we are so honored and invigorated to have placed at all!!

We had all of our educational materials and Patent #6630507 Prints available for sale alongside our 5 newly released herbal blends that could all be made into tea, added to a bath, smoked or vaporized, and lots more! Guests also had the opportunity to craft their own herbal blends with 7 of our 8 herbs (unfortunately we weren't able to have our eighth and favorite herb, cannabis) in the back of our booth with help from our Wellness Guides.

 We found this easel at Goodwill for just $12 totally beaten up, stickered, and drawn on — but after just a day of sanding, disassembling, and repainting, it turned out to be a great addition to our setup!

 HUGE thanks to the family for helping work the booth!! It was 1000% a team effort, and it wouldn't have happened without support from Kristen's insanely amazing and supportive family that all pitched in their time and energy to make it happen.

We had fourteen 13x19" posters on display that introduced everything from the endocannabinoid system to terpenes, methods of consumption, the difference between hemp & marijuana, and more!

Each herb jar had all the information from our Herb Reference Card set (including terpenes, nutrients, the body system it supports, what its been used for, and safety information) right on the jar to help guests choose the best herbs for their own, personalized blend! 

Mullein + Rose + Rosemary

Mullein + Chamomile + Rose

Mullein + Peppermint + Lavender

Mullein + Lavender + Thyme

Mullein + Rose + Peppermint

If guests were hesitant to venture on their own, they also had the recipes of our 5 pre-made herbal blends available so that they could still get first-hand experience creating an herbal blend. 


Thank you!!

We are so grateful to everyone who came by our booth!! It was absolutely amazing getting to meet and talk with so many people in the community. We heard lots of incredible first-hand stories about how cannabis has changed lives for the better, and we were so touched by everyone's support.
