As Captain Planet said, “By your powers combined…” big things happen to help the earth.

 
This Earth Day, April 22, Atlanta-based eatery Saltyard powers up with Athens-based brewery, Creature Comforts, for a beer dinner benefitting local non-profit The Farmer Fund. Atlanta’s favorite beer personality, Ale Sharpton, will be in attendance to host a raffle at the end of dinner.
