I'm asking for your help in supporting this year's Earth Week events hosted by the Tribal women here in Fallon, NV. The theme of this year's Earth Day event is "Water is Life."

Every year the staff of the Fallon Tribe pulls together to host Earth Week events. The core group that hosts these events consists of 3 committed native women. We work very hard to host the events and are honored to make this offering to the community. We do a lot with very little money. We want to make these events the best they can be, but we need help this year because of budget shortfalls in our programs. Our total budget for all of the events this year is less than $2,000. That includes t-shirts, food, beverages, table/chair rentals, facility rentals, plates/utensils, stipend for the band, seeds/plants/trees, trash bags, gloves, and other necessary supplies. The movie night and dinner this year has a budget of less than $350 for up to 90 people!

We would very much appreciate your offerings to make these event the best we can for our community. We plan on using the money raised to directly support our tribal community and event volunteers by purchasing refreshments, food, snacks, and supporting the purchase of seeds, plants and trees for community garden projects. Even a $5 donation will help us provide a diabetic-friendly option and desert at the family dinner or will pay for one more plant to be planted in a Tribal garden on the reservation.

We offer many events to the Tribal community and the greater community of Fallon to inspire a new vision for relating to our mama Earth. In total our events serve hundreds of people. This year we will be hosting the following events:

  • Earth Week Poster Contest- We have a poster contest and honor our native artists by displaying their work and offering small gifts to winning artists. We print the winning art on t-shirts for the artists and volunteers.
  • Scrap Metals Pick up- We pick up scrap metals and computers for recycling.
  • Large Item Pick up- We pick up large items that cannot be recycled and pay for disposal at the local landfill. This keeps these items from ending up in open dumps on the Reservation and keeps pollutants out of our waters.
  • Community Clean Up- We pick 2 places on Tribal Lands and give them some love and care.
  • Freecycle- We host 2 days of freecycling. Everyone loves coming out to trade with their neighbors.
  • Family Movie Night- We host a family-style movie night. We take time to serve our community and offer dinner before the movie. This is always a wonderful time to gather as a community and relax as we share food with our neighbors.
  • Earth Day Celebration- The main event at the park with booths, activities, games, raffles, live music, and community fun. This celebration brings together the entire community both from the Tribe as well as the local community of Fallon for a day to honor together the water and lands that sustain us. It is a beautiful event and we love hosting it every year! This year we will be offering a booth on sheet mulching and a good friend will be coming down to offer a seed ball making tent!!!
