Window Farming with LIC Eco-Teens
During our first environmental science program for teens at Queens Library at Long Island City, Greening Library staffer Gil Lopez worked with some teen patrons to install a Window Farm in the south facing window of upstairs auditorium A. We seeded one column of the system with collard greens and will leave the second column for a future Nature Kids program to seed. The Nature Kids children will check up on the plants weekly while the teen program will take place on the second Wednesday of each month. So check back with us for pictures and updates of how our indoor, stacked hydroponic system and the crops we are growing are coming along!
Please let us know (comment below!) if you are interested in creating a Window Farm in your home or apartment. We have a DIY Window Farm workshop that is offered regularly as a Greening Libraries program!
