Perfect Earth Project has been working tirelessly to transition the grounds of East End institutions be to toxin-free. This program will begin with a short talk about the Perfect Earth Project’s installation in A Sense of Place, and then Edwina von Gal will present special signs to representatives of the PRFCT toxin-free public places, including Southampton Hospital, Parrish Art Museum, Southampton Dog Run, Southampton Rose Garden, and Southampton Arts Center. Guests are also encouraged to view the works in galleries and enjoy light refreshments.
The program will conclude with a Bee House Workshop – including craft activity targeted to parents and children, using recycled and natural materials to make native Bee Hotels. This activity will educate attendees on the importance of native pollinator populations and how they can protect them in the spaces they own and visit. Reservations for the workshop can be made through Perfect Earth Project.
