WHAT: A family-friendly day of entertainment, activities, food and giveaways. A celebration of Spring, Compost, and the Magic of turning ''waste" into a resource.
The centerpiece of the celebration is two performances of "The Adventures of Pistachio: a Brooklyn Girl made from Trash" a musical play for children 3-8 years old. In it, our hero Pistachio and a colorful cast of characters save the world from waste and villain 'useless' garbage, by turning it into compost and crafts. *Performances at 11 AM and 1 PM.
