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 to be held at the Eugene Young Environmental Education Center. In this program series, Raíces EcoCulture will offer the eight 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. Hands on workshops will be presented on topics including:
- Herbal Healing
- Seed Saving
- Solar Energy
- Waste Reduction
- Backyard Composting
This pilot program will be the first in a continuing series of environmental, ecological and sustainable living workshops, held at the Eugene Young Environmental Education Center and other locations throughout the community.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the voting process and an extra special thank you to all of our supporters who helped spread the word and share information about this proposed program. Thanks to you, we will be making it a reality!
The schedule for the series will be announced the last week of March. Please sign up for the Raíces e-mail list in the sidebar to have the program schedule delivered to your inbox or check back at the end of March for more information.
