Hundreds of families visited Chula Vista's South Bay Earth Day celebration this Saturday.

Families learned about home repairs reusing materials, how to build a house with the least possible expense, the correct way to maintain a garden and a vegetable garden, and jewelry and decorations made with recyclable and natural materials, among other things.

The city presented a message: "to change the way we treat our planet, we must learn about the environmental problems we face today and the actions we can take to solve them. Learn how to do it in fun with the community around you! Join your fellow eco-lovers and show Mother Nature some appreciation this Earth Day!

South Bay Earth Day is an annual event. If you did not have the opportunity to attend this time, consider doing so next year.
