Press Release by Newport News Go Green Expo Committee Chair Charlie Tiedeken
The decision was made in May to have a virtual event. This came about due to the crowd restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
We have established a YouTube channel offering educational and instructional videos on various subjects pertaining to sustainability of our environment. The channel can be found under the name “Go Green Newport News Channel”.
We are also offering the opportunity to purchase rain barrels and vermiculture kits. Go to the website nngogreeexpo.org and click on the workshops banner for instructions on purchasing them. The barrels and vermiculture kits will be distributed at the Brittingham Mid-Town Community Center on September 12th, 2020, from 1PM to 3PMfor those who have prepaid.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “Vermiculture”; it is using worms to compost food scraps. The kits come complete including the worms. And instructional video can be found on the You Tube channel.
There is also an instructional video on the channel on how to assemble rain barrels.
We hope to attract a good viewership for the virtual event and look forward to holding our regular one in 2021
