Hello everyone!

Last night I was at a workshop on “Rainwater Collection and Green Infrastructure” at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The workshop was very informative and taught me a lot interesting, practical, and new things to help “green” NYC.

The workshop was put on by Grow NYC and the BBG. Both of these organizations have many different free workshops after school and in the evening to help people in education and in other fields learn more about sustainable living. Below is a list of various workshops and events compiled from various areas.
