Starflower Experiences runs an Accredited EarthkeepersTM program
The Earthkeepers program is run at sites around the world!
Rangers of the EarthTM
Starflower Experiences was lucky to be a pilot site for The Institute for Earth Education's Rangers of the Earth program. This is the 16th year at the Martin Luther King Jr School in Wyandanch.
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.

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?
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.
