Kids Activities – Build a Solar Car, and More!!

All kids are welcome! Visit Solar One located near the middle of the Block Party who is hosting green kids activities.  There will be insect drawing for the young ones in the morning; seed bomb building for young teens and solar car construction and racing. Solar car building and racing is limited to 15 so make sure you sign up! See the Schedule of Events page for more information. Recycle-A-Bicycle will run crafting activities for kids on a drop-in basis. Making art out of old bicycle parts is a fun way to re-purpose the bits of “cannibalized” bikes that RAB can’t use for rebuilt bikes!

Coming this fall from GreenHomeNYC: a DIY street festival!

Coming this fall… The New New York, GreenHomeNYC’s revolutionary interpretation of the typical New York street fair. Get it in your schedules now: Saturday, October 2, 2010, all day. Third St between Bond and Hoyt in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. We’re bringing to the street the latest education, products, and visions for a greener New York City, and we’re practicing what we preach. This event will serve as a prototype to “green up” all future New York street fairs by minimizing trash, composting/recycling waste, using biofuel, and more. Visit greenhomenyc.org/thenewnewyork for more. Be a part of this paradigm-shifting event that will bring a deeper understanding of what a truly green New York City can be by involving the residents of New York to TAKE ACTION. (more…)
