Our newest Co+op Explorers for Kids program will be all about Upcycling. When you Upcycle, you are creating something from what you already have, rather than using new materials. It’s a sustainable and creative way to have fun, and make something useful with your kids! 

These classes will be held on the patio for ages 2-12. Currently, there is no sign-up required.
Classes are held from 11 am to 12 noon.
