April 2012- Earth Day

Central Park in bloom
April brings the start of the flowering, budding, greening and blooming of all the vegetation in New England. During our mini break to Connecticut and New York City we decided to honor the wonderful greenery around us. First stop was the American Natural History Museum in NYC. Amazing to see the exhibits that have been created so painstakingly. Hand painted backgrounds to duplicate habitats and species from bygone eras. We paid our tribute to nature in this indoor setting and then stepping out into the brilliant sunlight, we walked into Central Park. The trees and flowers were in full bloom everywhere and people were sitting on rocks, walking the various paths and heading towards the boathouse and Bethesda fountain. Included are some pictures our travels to find nature in one of the world's busiest cities.

Back in Boston, we were invited to showcase our business by through Graduate School of Design at the i-lab in a panel discussion. The topic was Environmentally conscious entrepreneurial ventures in the Boston area. The panelists were from various organizations like Slow Money, Green Goat etc. Our designs were showcased and I was part of the panel as well. It was a wonderful way to celebrate Earth day or Earth Week!
