Center for Environment offers events Saturday

Live it Up Cabarrus will feature demonstrations on healthy cooking, backyard gardening and composting as well as a Gas Cap Check, offered by the Center for the Environment at Catawba College, and various fitness activities, like a 3K and Fun Run.
The annual event to encourage healthy living and to strengthen ties to nutritious, locally produced food, will be held from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday at the barn in Frank Liske Park in Concord.
Center for the Environment staff and volunteers will be available to test vehicle gas caps and replace leaking caps free of charge.
The service is made possible through the centerís Campaign for Clean Air, which is designed to educate citizens in the community and region and empower them to take action to address the air quality issues the region faces.
Statistics show that 30 gallons of gasoline and about 200 pounds of evaporative emissions can be released every year from one leaking gas cap. This contributes to air pollution and wastes fuel.
The demonstrations will include how to start a garden, soil amendments, organic cooking, cutting up a chicken, composting, backyard and container gardens and a plant clinic. Fresh herbs, produce, local meat and cheese will be sold.
