Do You Recycle?

This summer I have enrolled my daughter into a 1 week  “Recycling Camp”.  Day 1 had her going through our trash and informing us of all the harm “WE” were doing to “HER” world.  I must say-after that conversation, I was not looking forward to the rest of this week and her gaining more information in this area.
We recycle. At least I thought we did. We have a recycling bin from the city- to which we seem to slowly fill and pull to the curb I think, once a month. Is that not enough?  Thinking about how much trash we use and toss each day-I’m sure we have more paper, plastic and metal going out to have that filled weekly.
*hangs head in shame*
To be a bit more supportive, today I bought Lydia a 3-bin recycling kit and did more research in this area.
Here is a link I found to be helpful. You can also earn some cool points and prizes to recycle!

Westview Summer Solstice (June 25th) Update!

Did you know that there is a CVC Urban Farm right here in Southwest Atlanta?

Formed as part of NPU-T’s Community Food Project, the Atwood Community Gardens (http://www.nextstepsyep.org) has been located in the Beecher-Donnelly (http://www.beecherdonnelly.com/) neighborhood since 2008. With the support of many southwest Atlanta residents and friends, the urban farm has initiated an agricultural training program that uses gardening to introduce students to careers in STEM.

Learn more about Beecher-Donnelly and other southwest Atlanta neighborhoods that will compete in the Westview Summer Solstice grill off competition! Come out on June 25th and join us for a day of music, food, vendors, and more. http://www.westviewatlanta.com/

This event is not possible without neighborhood donations and support. We need your help! See below how to help make this event a success.

 

Best,
