Happy Asian Lunar New Year! (ok it was a few weeks ago)

We rang in the new year with the dancing dragons at the Amico Senior Center in Borough Park.

Some of the RADsters joined in the festivities and sang and danced for the seniors.

Hammer Time

We recently completed a month-long project at the awesome Construction Kids, a place where kids go to build cool stuff with real tools.

We started off learning how to use a hammer and nails, and then went on to make wooden boxes, marble runs, and little guys with odd-shaped heads.

Tuesday is for Chickens

Every Tuesday, we tend the hens at the community garden nearby.

We feed them fresh vegetable scraps, give them fresh and unfrozen water, check for eggs (sometimes we take them!) and scoop the poop out of the coop (yuck!).

 We first met the garden hens last year. This is a different crew, but they are just as sweet.

Miss Kristin, mistress of chickens at the garden, shows us how it's done.

 Good night, gals!
