From planting gardens of flowers and vegetables at our centers to recycling, being GREEN is implemented in many ways at our community centers and schools throughout the city.

In celebration of Earth Day, families at the East Harlem Center’s Early Childhood Program had Yoga class on the center’s roof top where they could appreciate the warm sunlight and give praise to Mother Nature’s blessings while learning how to stay fit with their little ones.

Also, the Eco-Fashion and Green Design Club of M.S. 324, at the Mirabal Sisters Community School in Washington Heights, created wearable clothing out of recyclable materials such as newspapers, trash bags, bike parts and Metrocards. Club participants were able to strut their “recycled” stuff during the 9th Annual Children’s Art Show in February held at the National Arts Club at Gramercy Park.
