This is the recently mounted EPCHS Hope Club display case. In the bottom left corner is an awards plaque with the names of the recipients of the EPCHS Green Team Scholarship. You can see that Hannah and Elena were the first two scholarship winners. Also in the display is a poster offering the wise advise to ‘Think Global, Act Local!’ There is also a flier advertising our next East Peoria Green glass recycling event, on Nov. 11th.

Reiman Gardens

Posted on: August 12th, 2017 by rjohnson

East Peoria Green Team member Shelly Farmer and her husband Rick recently visited Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa to look at the sculptures made from trash collected from beaches around Bandon, Oregon.

This exhibit of larger-than-life sea creatures graphically illustrates the issue of the pollution in our oceans and waterways. Their daughter Jennifer Faraci is an artist apprentice for WashedAshore.org.

Try to visit Reiman Gardens to see this exhibit which runs till October 31, 2017.
