Earth Gathering was created in 2000 when Shelley Pocock and a group of friends wanted to find a way to celebrate the Earth without the politics of Earth Day. Now, the arts festival is in its 21st year.

CHILLICOTHE — Two decades in the past, Shelly Pocock established out to make an function that differed from other Earth Day celebrations. Then, the Earth Collecting festival was fashioned.

It really is an artwork festival with an earth-centric twist that the founder developed to educate, entertain and enlighten the public. By way of art, songs, food stuff, products and concepts, attendees are encouraged to study about and join with the Earth.

“I think Earth Collecting has influenced many in a good way, and whilst this is a scaled-down occasion, everyone who has attended around the previous 21 years is familiar with the intent is understood,” Pocock reported.

A 1986 graduate of Chillicothe Substantial University, Pocock moved back home in 1997 following earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Columbus College or university of Artwork & Design. Then, she joined the Chillicothe Art League.
