Our day will consist of a discussion with Susan Cascino as she informs us on what we can be doing to help keep our neighborhood clean from compositing to recycling 101. After, we will break into groups and head out to beautify Fort Point. From doggie bag stations, aluminum straws to succulents we're doing it all. Stick around long enough to celebrate with us at the end! More information coming soon.
