Now that spring is here we are going to see a lot of bees on the honey run. We, at TESC, love our bees and want to educate our community about the benefits of bees. Please watch Erin, our own amateur beekeeper, talk about the wonderful creature. And feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Join us (and communities all over the world) on April 22nd to celebrate Earth Day. There are various events (digital) throughout the world that you can join and enjoy for FREE. Here is the link – https://www.earthday.org/earth-day-2020/#map
In this video, shot during the 3rd Annual Tuckahoe DPW Day, Donald talks about our composting program. He also gives a step-by-step description of how you can become a part of this wonderful program
On April 2nd 2020, Yeager Room of the Bronxville Library, 201 Pondfield Road, 7 p.m. Nick Guntli of the New York Horticultural Society will discuss, “Green Gardening Practices and Why They Matter.” This event is free and open to all. It is sponsored by the Bronxville Green Committee, the Boulder Ledge Garden Club, the Working Gardeners of Bronxville, and the Bronxville Beautification Council.
Beginning March 1st, 2020 retail stores will no longer provide, single-use plastic bags. Please get in the habit of bringing your own reusable bags when you go shopping.
People often wonder what bag should they use. The right answer is – any bag that you can reuse is fine. Does not matter whether it is plastic, paper, or canvas bag as long as you reuse them over and over again.
