From Garbage to Gardens: Greening the New York City Housing Authority
February 16, 2013 @ 2:00 pm — 4:00 pm$10
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.
