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

February 16, 2013 @ 2:00 pm4:00 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.
