NYC Parks Media Education partnered with NYC Beekeeping to develop a new series of projects called “Media With A Purpose.” To join ‘sustainability’ and ‘media,’ and how technology and agriculture can and should work hand in hand. This film was created by teen students of Red Hook and Sunset Media Labs in record time! Thank you CTE Summer Scholars for interns Mayumi Gurung, Emily Lee, Jacquline Salas, Aziza Alvarenga, and Mario Lowe. They were all incredibly talented apprentices who filmed and edited this documentary in three days!!!
Thank you, Media Education Coordinator, Beatrice Toscano for your rigorous student’s training, you rock! 💪

Organized by the Red Hook Recreation Center, the Earth Day celebrations were an excellent opportunity for Garden Kitchen Lab to meet-and-greet with other like-minded organizations. Thank you #GrowGotham (Gotham Greens) for donating 1,200 basil and lettuce seedlings giveaways. It was a fantastic way to start the growing season, and the children absolutely loved it!!! Thank you, Isiah Forde, Ali Khan, and Deborah Grant for the invite!
