Every Person in New York

The major celebration of Earth Day has passed but the work continues and so do the events.

This Sunday at Prospect Park's Audubon Center has eco activities from 1-4pm.

At Brooklyn's Earth Arts Center, Sowing a Regenerative Resistance is an "ethnobotanical festival and convergence," which sounds word-salady to us, but their heart's in the right place.

End Plastic Pollution was this year's Earth Day theme. These groups are working on the problem year-round:
Monterey Bay Aquarium
The Ocean Cleanup
5 Gyres
The Ocean Conservancy

At the moment, "fixer" has an unsavory connotation. But as the heartening Grist 50 2018 list shows, lots of smart people are working on promising projects, including Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, founder of Brooklyn-based Ocean Collectiv.

Tonight at the Museum of the City of New York, Feeding the Apple: New York's Future Food Supply, a talk with Dan Barber and Julia Moskin. Tickets are $30.

The New York Restoration Project, in conjunction with various community organizations, urges you to Take Home a Free Tree this Saturday. Register at one of these locations ahead of time.

The elephant in the room: Scott Pruitt. The New Yorker's Margaret Talbot lays it out.

Jason Polan started Every Person in New York in March of 2008. He plans on working on the project until it is finished. Look for more at Jason's site and his book Every Person in New York.
