Join us in Napa for Food is Life, a five-day festival from April 22–26, 2020 celebrating all things food, beverage, and sustainability with cooking demonstrations and tastings, live talks, film screenings, music, and the awe-inspiring, three-dimensional Gaia art installation—a 23-foot wide NASA floating image of the Earth’s surface. Festivities kick off on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and bring together leading chefs, winemakers, and sustainable food producers for fun, hands-on experiences for all ages.
Our global food system has an enormous impact on the environment and climate change. If you are looking for events to celebrate Earth Day 2020, this food and wine festival focused on the role of food and its far-reaching impact on the planet is not to be missed.
We look forward to welcoming you to The CIA at Copia for the Food is Life festival in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22–26, 2020.

Do you want nutritious, easy to grow and utterly fresh food from your garden this spring and summer? UC Master Gardeners of Napa County will help home gardeners learn what the garden needs to successfully produce spring and summer vegetables from seeds and plant starts. In addition to growing basics and hands on activities, this program includes watering, fertilizing, and harvesting tips, with a dash of UC IPM for pest and disease control. The delight of growing your own groceries is matched only by savoring them at harvest.
With some planning and thought, you can create an inviting, yet water-saving, front yard. Refine the look of your front yard by using a variety of mulch, rock, hardscape or sculptures and carefully-chosen drought tolerant plants, including succulents of California native plants, to save water and reduce your water bill.
For more information visit the event page on UC Master Gardeners website.
