Summer is almost here! Summer is the growing season, the sunny season, the season for energy, recreation and fun. It’s a perfect season to spend at the center.
Our Management and Educational staff met yesterday with Sashti from Lower East Side Ecology Center.
Sashti introduced us to our new composting worm bin! Filled with hundreds of hungry worms, we learned about how they will take our café coffee grounds, afterschool apple cores and banana peels, and all the fruit and vegetable tops and peels from our Make a Mess Cooking classes to create composting soil.
Our Management staff was excited to learn how to lower our ecological footprint at Manhattan Youth, and our Educational Staff immediately started brainstorming lessons for our Animal Hour, Summer Science and Make a Mess Cook and Compost classes coming this summer.
To learn more about Lower East Side Ecology Center and the fine work they do including City Commuter Composting, E-waste Drop off, recycling and more, visit them at www.lesecologycenter.org.
To our Greenest Summer ever!
