GreenHomeNYC is hosting a Green Block Party on 3rd St. between Bond and Hoyt St. in Carrol Gardens on Saturday October 2nd. As part of their NEW New York initiative, they are providing area residents with tours, demonstrations, and activities to educate New Yorkers on how to ‘green’ their lives, city, and buildings.
As part of the festivities GreenHomeNYC will provide tours of area L.E.E.D. certified buildings, efforts to clean the Gowanus Canal, and several area green rooftops. Experts will be on hand to instruct attendees on how to recycle and reuse waste, choose the right lighting, do an energy audit of their home, build a solar car, and design and build a green rooftop.
The event takes place from 10AM to 6PM on Saturday, October 2nd. Several tours end at the Bell House for an after party around 7PM. For more information and a schedule of events, visit www.greenhomenyc.org
