Hey Hey Hey….it’s almost Earth Day…and Spring..and our SemiAnnual Community Wide Tag Sale..and…!

Over the next several weeks, Green Ossining will be busy working on a number of efforts.

 

First – Green Ossining is hoping to launch a Repair Cafe.      What’s a Repair Cafe?  Well – we throw out a lot of stuff.  We want to transform our throwaway economy.  But we also want to preserve repair know-how & skills, and pass them on to others.

 

Want to know more? Check this out : https://repaircafe.org/en/about/    

 

We are looking for local residents with skills who can be present as repair coaches during Repair Cafe hours: people who are skilled at repair of Bicycles, Electrical Appliances. Computers, Furnitue/Wooden Objects, Clothing/Textiles, for example. Hours will likely be for a few hours one Saturday every other month to begin with.   Reach out to Michele via email: mstonepeaceworks@gmail.com

Next Up: Our 7th Annual Earth Day Festival is on Saturday, April 22nd from 11a-4p at the beautiful Louis Engel Waterfront Park on the banks of the Hudson River.  Entrance is free and we look forward to welcoming all of our neighbors – near and far – to join us in celebration.   Vendor Registration is now closed, but LIKE our Facebook Event page (Green Ossining 7th Annual Earth Day Festival ) to get the most up-to-date information on all 80 Festival vendor profiles, activities, musical line-ups, and special entertainment.   Check out our Earth Day Festival Page here for flyers and special information.  Our theme this year is Food Sustainability and we’ve got many educational and informative opportunities to share with you.  But its still Earth Day, so we’ll be paying tribute by honoring Mother Earth in other ways as well.

*******************************************************

Lastly – just after Earth Day – on May 6th – Green Ossining is hosting our semi-annual Community Wide Tag Sale.  Anyone in Briarcliff Manor or Ossining may host a Green Ossining tag sale – but we do the promotion work for you (and leave you to the more important job of cleaning out your closets, garages, cars, etc).  See our Community Tag Sale page for Registration which is now OPEN!
