Organizers of the popular annual MI Earth Day Fest will launch a new event series, the Healthy People & Planet Wellness Festival, at the Royal Oak Farmers Market this fall and winter. Taking place on Thursdays, Oct. 15, Nov. 12 and Dec. 10, the family-friendly events run from 4 until 10 p.m. and feature green and wellness products, services and programs of leading local businesses and community groups.
