Learn 2 Live Green, the North Texas event for practical green living, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 12, at The Shops at Legacy, in Plano, with free children’s activities, live performances and hands-on learning experiences for everyone. This year’s theme of Green Your Well-Being draws on whole family health and personal well-being.

Howard Garrett, the “Dirt Doctor”, will provide tips on how to utilize natural and organic techniques in the garden and landscaping.
New family activities include Michael Fitzsimmons’ Drums of the World and Audience Drum Circle; Austin Bike Zoo’s butterfly bikes; and the Mountain Bike Track. The Food Zone will feature Chef Evelyn, from Urban-Foodie.com, who has worked with Oprah Winfrey’s private cook and the Food Network.
