Rangers of the EarthTM

Trying some 'whiffs'

This powerful program takes a whole year to complete, yet requires only 2 full days at an outdoor site plus opportunities for youngsters to explore natural places in their own community.

    Work days at Manor Farm Saturdays from 10 - 2, contact Rich at rich @

We'll be holding a Community Yard Sale at Manor Farm on Saturday June 1 from 10 am to 4 pm. For a donation of $20 you can have a 10'x10' space to sell your unwanted stuff. If you love garage/yard sales, this is for you! . If you want to reserve a space, click here: Yard Sale Reservation form

Repair Café May 25

Next Repair Café will be May 25 at the Wyandanch Plaza in Wyandanch! Mark your calendar. Save your broken stuff. (After that, September 7 at the Comsewogue Public Library.)

We always need more repair coaches--if you're good at fixing things, please let us know. We need someone who can work on jewelry. We are looking for people who can 'heal' stuffed animals or fix clothing. We'd love to have someone do on-site lessons on sewing on a button or darning socks or other simple DIY stuff. Are you a mental health professional who'd like to help "fix" people and can be a good listener for people who need to just talk? Are you good with computers? Good with fixing electronic stuff? Good at repairing furniture or miscellaneous items?

Repair Cafe May 25

Free Trade Zone--May 19, 2019 at the Wyandanch Youth Center
This is like GrowNYC's Stop 'n' Swap--a time when you can bring items in good, working condition that you no longer need and pick up items that might be useful to you.
Free Trade Zone
