Parent-Child Clean-up Event Offered

EASTHAMPTON—The owner of Beloved Earth and Cultivate Community will sponsor a free gathering and litter clean-up event for parents and their children Saturday, July 25 from 9 a.m. until noon at Nonotuck Park.

Terra Missildine is offering the event because she has a mission to protect the earth as well as an agenda to support parents and children. Missildine owns Beloved Earth, a green cleaning company based in Northampton, and she recently created Cultivate Community to assist what she calls parentpreneurs—or parents who are also entrepreneurs.

Participants in the clean-up event will meet at picnic site number one, between the parking lot and the new playground in the park. The walk will begin at 9:30 a.m., but people are welcome to join in at any point throughout the event.

Coffee, water, and juice boxes will be available, and gloves and hand sanitizer will be provided. Parents and children are encouraged to stroll through the park as they clean up their local community. There will be time for networking, and a raffle will be held after the clean-up walk.

To register for this event, contact Missildine at 413-949-3509 or
