Education Events and Workshops


Solarize is a non-profit community education and group purchasing program that makes it easier and more affordable for households and businesses to go solar with confidence. Co-sponsored by The Environmental Cooperative at The Vassar Barns and the Poughkeepsie Farm Project. Come & find out whether solar makes sense for you!

Nutrition in the Classroom

School-based programs can play an important role in promoting lifelong healthy eating. The more positive exposure children have to nutritious foods, the more likely they are to incorporate these foods into their day.  Join Jamie Levato and Ellie Limpert in learning practical strategies for effective health promotion in and out of the classroom.
