The Malibu Country Mart will unveil its use of electric-powered gardening equipment in a special ceremony on Earth Day.
"We want people to come and get inspired and come for a half an hour and adopt it throughout Malibu," said Julie Labin, Malibu Country Mart's director of sustainability.
On Sunday, the 's play area will be recognized by GreenStation as Green Zone certified, meaning the area uses only electric powered equipment, Labin said.
The event is set from 1-1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Malibu Country Mart, just down the street from the grand opening of the Malibu Library at 11 a.m. and Malibu Eco Fair at Legacy Park at noon.
Speakers will include Malibu resident June Louks, who also uses the equipment.
Louks, who has an edible garden at her home, is the author of "Rawumptious Recipes: A Family's Adventure to Healthy, Happy, Harmonious Living."
Michael Koss, general partner of the Malibu Country Mart, and Dan Mabe, founder and president of The Greenstation, will also speak.
The Malibu Country Mart already boasts a charging station for electric cars.
