SunShare is inviting the community to celebrate its community solar garden with a dedication ceremony to coincide with Earth Month.

Joining the home-grown company will be the Catamount Institute, Cool Science, CoPIRG and others at Venetucci Farm from 12:30 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 14.

The announcement promises free barbecue, live music and activities for all ages. "If you've leased panels in the Venetucci Garden, be sure to find one of our volunteer tour guides so that you can 'meet and greet' your panels for the first time!" the release says.

Attendees also can help plant the spring onion crop with the Venetucci farmers.

To get there on Interstate 25 going south, take the South Academy Boulevard Exit 135, go east for ½ mile and take the exit for Highway 85 toward Fountain. Then turn right on Highway 85 and go 0.9 mile. The farm is on the right.

But you must register to attend. Do that here.
