I’ve been working with Riker Danzig and Newark based nonprofit Planting Seeds of Hope to keep the wealth of food waste—>healthy soil development within local control. Local management of food waste is necessary for communities all over the state. See our petition with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection here.
I am offering up LTNLTLxLRWPxcoLAB Hanging Planter as a Photo-Booth/Step & Repeat opportunity for 2019-2020. Preferred events center around Urban Agriculture, Environmental Conservation, and Zero Waste Initiatives but goshdarnit if you want it for a party I am happy to acquiesce. Feel free to email me with questions and budget information.

The young students in the photograph above are having their hands cast in alginate while holding a piece of trash found in a watershed cleanup.
