Ted Cruz doesn’t believe in global warming. Despite reams of evidence to the contrary, the junior senator from Texas sticks to his stilted narrative. Ramblings of a presidential hopeful aside, the importance of taking care of the planet cannot be overstated. On Saturday, April 18, the weekly you’re reading — printed on recycled paper, mind you — will hold the RVA Earth Day festival in Manchester. The sixth annual event will feature performances from the Trongone Band and Three Sheets to the Wind, plus a bounty of live entertainment, activities, vendors and fermented and culinary diversions. But more important, it will showcase how and why to be better children to mother earth. Proceeds benefit Feed RVA, a nonprofit dedicated to informing people of the importance of food systems, healthy eating and being responsible global citizens. The party-with-a-purpose runs noon-7 p.m. Free.
