Science Workshop with Groundworks Hudson Valley

July 24, 2019 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Green potted plant on floor.

The Science Barge in downtown Yonkers is a sustainable urban farm. The Science Barge greenhouse, floating on the Hudson River, grows an abundance of fresh produce including tomatoes, melons, popcorn, peppers, eggplant, and lettuce with zero net carbon emissions, zero pesticides, and zero runoff. All of the energy needed to power the Barge is generated by solar panels, wind turbines, and biofuels, while the hydroponic greenhouse is irrigated solely by collected  rainwater and purified river water, thus operating completely “off the grid.” It is the only fully functioning demonstration of renewable energy supporting sustainable food production in New York. 

Cross County Shopping Center and Groundworks Hudson Valley are hosting a Science Barge Workshop AT CROSS COUNTY! Kids will learn to love science with an exciting, interactive program, on The Green, at Center Court.

This workshop is free and geared towards children ages 5 and up.
