US House of Representatives Presentation: NY Sun Works Goes to Washington
Last week, NY Sun Works presented before the U.S. House of Representatives Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC). SEEC, which is made up of approximately 70 Congress members working to address climate change, met on Dec. 9 to discuss issues related to urban agriculture. Manuela Zamora and Megan Nordgrén were excited to share how NY Sun Works is bringing science, sustainability and climate education through hydroponic farming to 180 NYC schools, and growing. Thank you to Rep. Yvette Clarke of Brooklyn for inviting us to participate in this informative and important conversation. While in DC, NY Sun Works met with several other local members of the House of Representatives and their staffs, including Rep. Grace Meng of Queens, Rep. Gregory Meeks of Queens and Rep. Adriano Espaillat of Northern Manhattan, to discuss our program and the impacts we are having in schools throughout the NYC region. Special thanks to Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Chair of the House Appropriations Committee, for hosting our team for an instructive and worthwhile meeting.
