Hello friends and families,
We are excited to see you this Sunday at Ethics for Children!  Read below for info about this weekend and other updates…

There is a weekend full of local family events to check out, including EfC of course..read on below!

Saturday, 10/15/16: Join us at the 5th annual Permaculture Festival at Old Stone House. This is a really nice family-friendly fall event and a great way to learn about permaculture and sustainability.  We are still in need of volunteers to help at our BSEC table, if you are available on Saturday morning or afternoon please let us know by filling the short form at: https://goo.gl/forms/wwNkPHA85MOcu8632 It is a fun opportunity to volunteer and meet others!

Sunday, 10/16/16The weather is looking great for our Evolving/Living Ethics trip into Prospect Park with herbalist Teana David! We will leave BSEC shortly after 11 am and will be back on site by the end of platform (12:30).  If you are running late, text me at 917-586-0130for our location. A reminder that this class will be filmed for a BRIC TV segment about Ethics for Children. A copy of the talent release form is attached if you are a parent of a child aged 8 and up and want to look at it before Sunday (no need to print it, we will have copies on hand for you to sign).

Herbalist and plant expert Teana David joins Living and Evolving Ethics to give us an introduction to plants, herbs and basic botany. Class will include a Plant ID walk in Prospect Park while Teana explains the plant’s medicinal uses (and whether or not they are edible) along with some historical and cultural context. We’ll end by making herbal vinegars, honey and infusion oils together.

After platform/classes, there will be a raising of a Black Lives Matter banner on the front of the building. This will include reading a poem; singing a song and a speaker. Kids are welcome to join their parents for this if interested.
