It’s time to emerge from hibernation and party like the hippie you are. If you’re in Astoria this weekend, I think this block party might be worth checking out on Saturday. The deets:
May 19, 2012! 12:00-3:00pm (rain or shine!)
In front of Build It Green!NYC’s Astoria Reuse Center (26th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets, Astoria)
Here’s some dreamy summer music to get you in the mood:
GrowNYC’s Stop ‘N’ Swap - Clear out clutter and help reduce NYC’s waste by bringing clean, portable, reusable items to donate to a new home, or simply take home items that are useful to you. It’s all free! No furniture/large items, please.
Electronic-waste recycling with WeRecycle! – Responsibly recycle computers, monitors, printers, scanners, fax machines, peripherals, (keyboards, mice, cables, etc.) televisions, VCRs, DVD players, cell phones, pagers, PDAs, phones, answering machines, game consoles, portable music players, & other personal e-devices.
Plant Sale to Benefit Western Queens Compost Initiative
Compost Tumbler Assembly Demo & Worm Bin Demo by WQCI
Chhaya CDC - Homeowners can bring their utility account numbers to sign up for a free/reduced cost energy assessment
Occupy Wall Street Screenprint Co-op – bring a t-shirt or bag to print on!
Appearances by Solar One, Green Shores, GreenHomeNYC, Two Coves Community Garden
PLUS: Both Build It Green!NYC Reuse Centers will be open for shopping and donating during the Block Party & Stop ‘N’ Swap (10am-5pm in both Astoria and Gowanus).
Be sure to stick around for the BIG!NYC & We Heart Astoria After-Party (3:00-5:00pm)!
