From Garbage to Gardens: Greening the New York City Housing Authority

February 16, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| $10 suggested

How can New York City’s pub­lic hous­ing, home to more than 400,000 New York­ers, set an exam­ple for the city in becom­ing a cleaner and greener place to live?

Join the Museum’s Neigh­bor­hood Explor­ers from the Lehman Vil­lage Com­mu­nity Cen­ter to learn about their work to intro­duce com­post­ing to reduce waste in their neigh­bor­hood. Hands-on activ­i­ties will teach work­shop par­tic­i­pants how com­post trans­forms garbage into gar­dens and how they can get started “green­ing” their own neigh­bor­hoods.
