StopWaste Sponsors New Recycling Center Exhibit
 
Young children will put on recycling center jackets, drive the recycling truck, load and sort recyclables, see how composting works, and visit the recycled art 'make and play' platform in Habitot's Recycling Center exhibit early next year. Thanks to a generous $20,000 grant from Alameda County's StopWaste, the new exhibit will help spread awareness for best practices in waste reduction and help parents and children begin home practices that help the earth.
Rotary Club-Berkeley Renovates Paint Wall!
 
After 20 years of nearly continuous mural-painting, Habitot's Art Studio painting wall needed a makeover. Thanks to volunteer architects and builders of the Berkeley Rotary Club, the Painting Wall, and the irrigation system supporting it, will be re-done early this month. NOTE: the Painting Wall will be closed June 4-5; the Art Studio will remain open.
