Earth Day Celebrations around Brooklyn

Ah Earthday.... there are so many great celebrations going on around the city where you can learn more about the environment and what you can do. The accompanying photo is an Art Photograph by Ania of Honorata.

If you're in the Greenpoint/ Williamsburg / Bushwick area, head on over to McCarren Park for North Brookyn's first ever Earth Day Celebration, Go Green! Go Greenpoint! on Saturday April 19 from 11 to 4pm. They'll have educational programs, recycling stations, contests, live music, and a market full of eco-friendly products, where our own CharlieAndSarah will be selling their fun line of English inspired gear for adults and children.

If you're in The Park Slope, Red Hook, Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, head on over to the Old Stone House on May 17th for the Park Slope Parents Association Eco Fest at the Old Stone House on 5th Avenue btw 3rd and 4th Streets. Kathy aka Fofolle will be there running a Monster Making workshop with some material donated by fellow {NewNew} members. There will also be 10 Green Designers vending at the event.

Know of any more in your neighborhood?
