SGITW's Annual Energy of Youth Benefit Concert and Potluck Dinner

Friday November 14th,  6:30 – 8:30 p.m. 

Performing world music that is inspiring and accessible for young people has been an annual theme for this benefit concert, which is performed by children ages 8-18. This year's event will feature a wide variety of classical, traditional, and original music.  

Proceeds from the event go to support the sustainable living and alternative energy projects of Something Good in the World, and in the past we have built our famous seesaw pump, and a bicycle that generates electricity, as well as our low-wind power generation system and an interactive, educational wind power demonstration for children, biodynamic beehives, and a kid-powered bike blender to make organic fruit smoothies, a pop-up greenhouse, and woolly pocket gardens made from recycled materials - all from the contributions received at these concerts!

This year, the concert will take place at the eco-friendly, sustainable, geothermal, recognized as one of the most energy efficient in NY State, home of Rabia and Paul Nagin in Pomona, NY!  All funds received at this event are tax-deductible and will go to support the construction of our off-the-grid, eco-friendly Earth School Envira Pod Education Center!

$25 suggested donation for adults, $10 for students, $5 for children under 12.  Bring a potluck dish to share! RSVP and for directions: 914-217-9249 or somethinggooditw@aol.com

Children’s Peaceful Garden Open Work Weekend: Come and join us for our annual Children’s Peaceful Garden Open Work Weekend at Hilltop Hanover Farm.  All ages are invited to help us weed and prepare the soil for the native plant and flower gardens, plant new perennials and vegetables, use the seesaw to pump water from the wetland pond to water our gardens, and help us create a new swing that generates electricity!  
 
Children can also enjoy the old-fashioned tire swing, visit the free-ranging chickens, ride our pedal-a-watt bike to make organic fruit smoothies, and just enjoy an afternoon on the farm.  Bring along gardening tools, work gloves, and pack a picnic lunch.  Donations of native plants, herbs and flowers are welcome.
