Thanks to all who came out to support Raíces EcoCulture in the Highland Park Borough’s Park Partners grant competition on February 12. Over 300 residents participated in the vote, and Raíces Cultural Center won in the environmental category allowing us to launch a new Sustainable Living Workshop Series held at the Eugene Young Environmental Education Center. In this program series, Raíces EcoCulture offered ten introductory hands-on workshops in sustainable living and ecology, with the support of Sustainable Highland Park and members of the Highland Park High School Environmental Club.
