Attention all University Settlement and residents of the Lower East Side and Chinatown! On Tuesday there’s a very important event meant just for you! More info below…
Last week we told you about how our Culture Club students attended a special workshop about art led by the Creative Center’s Robin Glazer and got to take an artwork home. Well, now you can take a look at the art for yourself and read each student’s description below. Enjoy!
Last week our Adult Literacy Program students did some volunteer work with our Older Adults program, helping serve a Thanksgiving meal and also delivering Meals on Wheels. As you can see from the pictures above, our students had a great time!
On October 13th, Sunday, our W2 students volunteered at 6 & B Garden. After the volunteer work, they enjoyed coffee and mint water prepared by the garden. Thank you so much for hosting us, Barbara!
The students learned about the garden while walking around and listening to Barbara and Michael.
The students raked leaves, swept and picked up garbage on the streets around the garden, and cleaned the kids’ play area by digging the soil with shovels and moving the soil in a wheelbarrow to the pond. They also gathered leaves and sawed and cut tree branches and twigs to compost.
A bee was working hard, too.
Have you ever seen purple peppers? They were so exotic!
A few days ago a few 3A and 3P students volunteered at M’Finda Kalunga Community Garden just around the block. They raked leaves, they shoveled dirt, they planted and watered plants, they fed fish and turtles, and they played bocce ball. Thanks to Park Warden Bob Humber (pictured in the back row left) for hosting us! To learn more about the M’Finda Kalunga Community Garden click here, and enjoy more pictures below:
