Wednesday’s storm brought down a branch and split a major limb from the trunk of one of our hackberry trees. This made for a Thursday full of tree care at Stuyvesant Cove Park. While volunteers sawed the downed branch into manageable logs, Gardener Jordan Aponte and Intern Baba Fousseni secured the split limb until our poor hackberry can receive professional help. Good Work Guys!
Kids of all ages are invited to Stuyvesant Cove Park for Solar One’s Family Day! Make ecologically sustainable cardboard animal masks, estuary puppets, leaf people, watercolor paintings and much more! RSVP to dina[at]solar1[dot]org.
Stuyvesant Cove Park is happy to once again be a host site for the Consortium for Worker Education (CWE). CWE is a workforce training non-profit agency with a number of programs for helping youth, new Americans, and dislocated workers. The volunteer program connects youth volunteers who are certified tradesmen seeking work experience to places that can give them on site job training (That’s us!) The on-the-job training helps to give them a leg up in their entry into the job market.
Come to Solar One on Saturday June 23 for a day of learning about pollinators and the work they do to help create some of our favorite foodstuffs; making handmade ice cream; sprouting native salads; creating watercolor paintings, masks and costumes; and much, much more!
Suitable for kids and families of all ages. RSVP to daisy[at]solar1[dot]org.
