MILFORD - The Grotto Restaurant, Delaware River Fest and Air Soil Water have worked together to bring a great Earth Day-Birthday Celebration to Milford April 27th. Celebrating The Grotto’s 1st anniversary and Earth Day, the event will be an eco-friendly day for the entire family with a BBQ lunch on  the lawn and free birthday cake. It will be Sunday, April 27th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Grotto, 508 West Harford Street, Milford.
    Kids can sponsor their very own plant in the first Grotto Garden by decorating, labeling a flowerpot and planting seeds. The pots will be on display throughout the restaurant until the
herbs are mature enough to be replanted. Once replanted in the Grotto Garden, kids can come pick up their flowerpots and visit their plants. There will be several other environmental arts and crafts for kids.
    People should start saving milk cartons and jugs to bring for making bird feeders and in a special tie-in with 2014 Delaware River Eco Film Fest, there will be free environmental movies in The Grotto screening room.
