Hampstead Hill Academy Celebrates Organic Garden and Eco-Living

Hampstead Hill Academy (HHA) will celebrate recent enhancements to the school's organic garden and efforts to reduce the school's impact on the environment on Thursday, May 26, 2011 from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm. The celebration will be part of a Hampstead Hill Nights Family Fun Event.

HHA has positioned itself as a leader in sustainability and community engagement. A student-led Green Expo will provide education about energy and water conservation and waste reduction through games, print materials, and prizes.

During the entertainment break around 7:00 pm HHA will officially dedicate a new garden mural, which was created by HHA students in partnership with the Creative Alliance.

Following the dedication, attendees will enjoy a garden art reception and have the opportunity to appreciate recent sustainable garden additions, including rain barrels and drip irrigation.

Thanks to a partnership with Waste Neutral Group, all food and paper waste from the event will be composted!

The event will take place from 5:30 until 8:00 pm, with live music starting at 6:00 pm. The mural dedication will occur around 7:00 pm. For more information, contact Chrissa Carlson at
