August 13, 2009: Chris Collins, Executive Director Solar1, will discuss benefits of renewable energy, the work of Solar1, and how to feasibly incorporate such technologies in your everyday life.
Join New York Restoration Project (NYRP) in the Toyota Children's Learning Garden in Manhattan's East Village for a 4-part discussion series highlighting techniques to green our limited urban space. Whether you’re working in a garden, apartment, business or home, come and learn from New York City’s leaders in sustainable design.
The discussions and workshops will take place every other Thursday, July 30th - September 10th, in the garden from 7:00 - 8:00 pm. NYRP will also highlight the neighborhood's environmentally conscious restaurants and businesses. Following each discussion we invite everyone to join us for hors d'oeuvres and giveaways in the garden generously donated by Sustainable NYC, Angelicas Kitchen, Quintessence, Hummus Place, Spina, and more.
