Working on a wigwam in Prospect Park after the Brooklyn Tornado 2010!

Completed wigwam...

  Our garden adventure transitioned the RAD school smoothly into a discussion of the positive implications of sustainable agriculture, short-term and rental housing,  and locally-sourced meals.  During the second week of school, we investigated the positive and negative aspects of buying groceries from a chain supermarket versus buying groceries from independent and farmer’s markets.
Our first family picnic by the big rock.

Eagerly awaiting ice cream.
