From the Library – NEXT MONDAY (4/12/21): Growing Sprouts and Microgreens at Home

An Educator from the Cornell Cooperative Extension will join us (via Zoom) next week to talk about Growing Sprouts and Microgreens at Home.

Sprouts and microgreens are among the smallest edible plants on Earth, and they’re rich in vitamins and minerals. Easy to grow at home, they can garnish a healthy meal and provide a boost to your immune system. In this class, you will learn what plants to grow as sprouts and microgreens, and ideas and equipment required to grow these little power plants in your kitchen.

If you’d like to attend this class on Monday, April 12, at 6:00 PM, please register with your email address through our Online Calendar. You will receive an email with the Zoom login information before the class begins.

From the Town: Invigorate Irondequoit Returning Virtually

SATURDAY, April 24th, 2021

We Are Going Virtual!

Due to COVID-19 & out of a sense of precaution during these challenging times, we are going to Invigorate Irondequoit a little differently this year…..

Help keep Irondequoit beautiful by picking up debris from parks, sprucing up gardens & more!

Would your family, neighbors, close friends & local community groups like to help spruce up one of our many parks or other areas around Town? SIGN UP!

In an effort to keep our community safe and socially distant, the number of participants will be limited, so please register by contacting specialevents@irondequoit.org.

Send us your photos!

While Invigorating Irondequoit, be sure to take some great pictures and submit them to specialevents@irondequoit.org so we can create a “Celebration of Invigorate” for the Town’s social media platforms!

To sign up your family, neighbors, close friends or local community groups, Fill out the registration form and return it to specialevents@irondequoit.org

**Please Note that unlike past years, there will be no Invigorate pre or post activities held at Town Hall**

From the Library – THIS FRIDAY (4/9/21): Yoga Movement and Breath

Kasia Pelepko, an instructor at Now: Yoga and Movement, will join us (via Zoom) this week for Yoga Movement and Breath on Friday, April 9, at 6:00 PM.

This program will help you develop body awareness and embrace the remarkable things your body can do: move, focus, and breathe… all with an attitude of curiosity and playfulness! You’ll also learn some traditional yoga shapes that use various props you probably already have at home (a floor, a wall, a yoga belt or scarf, and a yoga block or some books). And we’ll end every class with some satisfying stretches and a short savasana (resting pose) to allow for some integration and rest.

If you’d like to attend Yoga Movement and Breath, please register now through our Online Calendar. Participants will receive an email with the login information before the program begins.

And if you can’t make it this Friday, don’t sweat it! Yoga Movement and Breath will be held every Friday this month.

From the Library – NEXT TUESDAY (4/6/21): Introduction to the Antiracist Curriculum Project

If you’d like to learn more about PathStone Foundation’s Antiracist Curriculum Project, please join us for an online presentation from Shane Wiegand, the Antiracist Curriculum Co-Lead at the PathStone Foundation:

Our team is committed to empowering students, teachers, and educational leaders with instructional resources on the local history of structural racism and civil rights in Monroe County. We support students and educators in the co-creation, implementation, and evaluation of curriculum that will allow students to explore and interpret our local history through rich primary sources.

Those who attend will have the opportunity to experience some of our curriculum, learn about the impact of racist policy on the Town of Irondequoit, hear the stories of those who fought back, offer feedback, and ask questions.

This presentation is co-sponsored by E.R.A.S.E. (Eliminating Racism And Seeking Equity) and is being offered in conjunction with the West Irondequoit School District.

Introduction to the Antiracist Curriculum Project will be broadcast on our Facebook page on Tuesday, April 6, at 7:00 PM.
