Habana Outpost’s Annual Earth Day Expo!

 

PrintIt’s that time of year again! Habana Outpost is gearing up to kick off another great season of delicious food and good times with family & friends at our annual 2014 Habana Works Earth Day Expo! On Saturday, April 12th we’ll be opening our doors for the first time this year to celebrate Habana Outpost’s re-opening and Earth Day! The expo will be a day filled with eco-friendly fun – done with a Habana twist of course!

Habana Works is the non-profit branch of the Habana family, which provides free hands-on programs that celebrate urban environmentalism in the Brooklyn community. The annual Earth Day Expo gives our neighbors a chance to join us in “spreading the love” by participating in the Earth Day program while sharing resources and ideas about sustainable living!

The Earth Day Expo will involve a variety of guests, who also promote environmentalism and social responsibility. Some of the highlights will include:

  • The Kid’s Corner – Habana Works will kick off its Kid’s Corner season with recycled arts & crafts!
  • Lower East Side Ecology Center – Showcases innovative recycling options for NYC residents including free public compost collection and electronic waste recycling.
  • NYC Compost Project Workshops – Sponsored by Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Department of Sanitation, these fun and informative workshops will teach you how to start composting at home.
  • Boswyk Farms – Learn about hydroponic farming using a demo system, literature and through conversation.
  • Food & Water Watch – Learn about common sense policies that will result in healthy, safe food and access to safe and affordable drinking water.
  • Green Homes – Find out more information on free and low-cost green building educational resources and events.
