    The eARThfest, which is now on its fifth year, gathers children for summer workshops in visual arts, theater, music and dance—all anchored in the vision of making the children as stewards of nature.

    The festival follows the theme of this year’s Earth Day celebrations around the world: “The Face of Climate Change.”
