These Boots Are Made for Planting!

Members of the new Hofstra Sustainability Studies Club, founded by sophomore Joanne Norris, paid a visit to the Diane Lindner-Goldberg Child Care Institute on Tuesday to do spring planting with the preschool and pre-K classes. Because of rainy weather, the planting was brought indoors, where old sneakers, boots and shoes were repurposed as containers. Later this spring, the children will be able to move the plants to an outdoor garden, located on their playground.

Saltzman Center, Child CareMembers of the Sustainability Studies Club who worked with the children include Norris, who has a double major in Sustainability Studies and Economics; Morgan Jones, a double-major in Sustainability Studies and Geology; Victoria McGuire, an Industrial Engineering major with a Sustainability Studies minor; Elizabeth Wolf, a double-major in Geology and History and also a Sustainability Studies minor; and Mariah Brown, a Political Science major.

The planting was part of activities for the “Week of the Young Child,” April 6-12, emphasizing quality early childhood programs. Today, the Child Care Institute welcomed Hofstra’s student Spectrum Theater Company, which presented a production of Pinocchio, and Hofstra’s Pep Band also stopped by to perform for the children.
