Worried about climate change but too busy to figure out what to do about it? Learn simple, practical strategies for your family to live sustainably at home and beyond.  Kids will enjoy a drop-off Going Green Playtime while parents hear from local experts about how to get involved and how to help our children cultivate an optimistic and pro-active environmental outlook as they grow.  The Kids program is geared toward children 2-9, while the Adult Workshop welcomes all parents/grandparents.

Going Green Playtime for Kids
Kids will join early childhood educators for songs, stories, and art projects about caring for the Earth and saving energy! The morning will culminate with a performance by acclaimed children's performer Kinderman, a Master Teacher Artist who will engage children in appreciation for the natural world through puppetry, story telling, music, and dance. The registration deadline for the Going Green Playtime is March 27; we cannot accept walk-ins.

Going Green Workshops for Grown-ups
The morning will include:

  • What's Happening to Our Kids' World?
    Faciliated by Julie Hantman & Joelle Novey (See "About the Facilitators" below)

Pre-registration is preferred for the Workshop for Grown-ups, but we can take walk-ins if necessary.
