Having a Green Summer

If you are looking for a fun Eco-Adventure activity for your child this summer, consider the Green House's EcoExplorer Adventure Club. The Green House is located at 224 Pakohana St. in Pauoa Valley and was started in 2004 by Betty Gearen. During the year, Betty offers classes to adults and children teaching everyone about earth conservation through projects that include worm composting, creating solar ovens, butterfly gardens and more.

We are lucky that this year the Green House is offering this fun summer program that includes

...five fun-filled weeks of hands-on environmental education that will inspire within students an ethic of stewardship for the world around them. The EcoExplorer Adventure Club is geared for children ages 5 through 12. They will spend each week exploring a range of topics designed to give students an appreciation for their environment and an awareness of their impact. Each week covers a new theme, and weekly enrollment options are available if families choose not to take the full five- week course. Our Green House teachers will create a safe learning community with a maximum of 15 children per session: a ratio of five children per teacher. Hands-on learning projects include planting a garden, building a solar oven, making a compost pile, building a wormery, making art using recycled items, and more! Join the fun this summer at The Green House!

Program dates: June 17 - July 17
Program days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Program hours: 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Ages: 5 - 12 years

Hi,

I'm Audrey. I found your blog through the mommyfest site. Even though the blog party is long over, I'm still loving reading blogs and meeting others.

My newest thing is using reusable grocery bags. I'm so excited. I shop daily, buying at least one bag worth of stuff, often two bags. I'm earning at least 50 cents a week plus saving all those bags.

This program sounds fun.
