Please help us paint the town Green for Earth Fest Warwick 2019
We would like to invite you to be a sponsor for the very popular Treecycle at Earth Fest Warwick, a hands-on, family friendly arts day using repurposed material, now in its 4th year. For sponsorship levels and rewards see below. Sponsorship Form
On May 4th and 5th, Stanley Deming Park will be transformed to celebrate Warwick’s commitment to re-use, repair, and re-creation. Produced by local non-profit Wickham Works, we’re expecting over 1000 folks to participate in honoring Warwick’s leadership as a sustainable community.
Treecycle takes place on Saturday, May 4, 10AM-5PM. Folks of all ages have a chance to get inspired by tree sculptures made from salvaged household items, meet the artists, and do some creative re-purposing themselves. Participants pick up practical tips to reduce their environmental footprint while having fun. Local artists, youth groups, and makers are busily working on tree sculptures, up-cycled craft demonstrations, a Kids Take-Apart table, Build-a-Bot station, Cardboard City maze with Tech hacks, and a Scavenger hunt. There’ll be a bike tune-up clinic, Makers Market selling environmentally friendly products, sustainability information tables, performances from local musicians, dancers, and puppeteers, and food vendors.
Treecycle is 100% homegrown – our volunteers work with numerous youth groups in the area to raise awareness of sustainability, give kids the opportunity to work alongside artists and social activists, and become leaders in the their own communities. Some of the groups we’ll be working with this year include, the Green Team from Sanfordville Elementary, the Change Makers Club at the Warwick Middle School, the Teen Advisory Board at the Albert Wisner Public Library, the Youth Leadership Team at the Warwick Valley Community Center, and we continue to reach further and collaborate with other groups in the region.
It’s important to us that Earth Fest is a free public event, open to all. We’re happy to say that Treecycle has been awarded small grants from OC Tourism and OC Arts Council to help out with stipends for artists and promotion. However, we are completely reliant on our sponsors to fund the activities we provide. With your help we can put on a fantastic day of creative fun for all. Please make a tax-deductible donation.

Now in its 3rd year, our very popular collaborative, community art project, Treecycle, is partnering with Sustainable Warwick’s free recycling event, Too Good To Toss, under the banner of Warwick Earth Day Festival. It will be held in Stanley Deming Park on Sunday, April 22nd, 10AM-4PM, and will culminate in an Illuminated Forest Walk at 7PM through the completed sculptures.
With the help of local guest artists, the public is invited to create tree sculptures using “art supplies” salvaged from the waste stream. While turning trash into treasure, participants learn about the importance of reducing their environmental footprint, how waste can be reused in fun and creative ways, and why we should bother to recycle.
In addition to multiple hands-on making opportunities for all ages–fairy houses, light-up bugs on sticks, patch screen printing and more–there will be vendors selling goods made from repurposed material, an Eco Raffle, and live music.
Sustainable Warwick's Too Good To Toss event is the perfect chance to do some spring cleaning. Items to be donated are dropped of on Saturday, April 21, 10-4PM at the basketball courts. All items must be clean, have all their parts and be in good working order. Find a complete list of accepted/unaccepted items here. Shop for free items on Sunday 22nd, 10-4PM, during the Festival.
