This Monday, May 18th, Wellness in the Schools and The Greenhouse Project are teaming up to host a benefit for NYC public school students to raise awareness and provide school children with fresh, healthier options in city cafeterias nation-wide. Funds raised will support the construction of a solar-powered, hydroponic greenhouse on the roof of PS 333. The greenhouse will serve as a year-round edible garden and education center where students will learn about nutrition and ecology. Proceeds will also go to Wellness in the Schools, dedicated to promoting environmental health, nutrition and fitness in the New York City school system.
Along with hosts Lauren Bacall, Ann Brashares and Donna Karan, there will be a tasting from Telepan, Dell’anima, Candle Café, Campo, Kitchenette and Whole Foods. To purchase your ticket or make a donation at brownpapertickets.com.
