RGK In The Local Community
We believe that strong local communities hinge on a vibrant local economy as well as active community involvement from businesses and residents. We’re best when we work together and support educational, cultural, social, and community organizations. Here are some of the local organizations Raising Global Kidizens supports through financial and other contributions.
Rachel Kohl Community Library | Sustainability Series
RGK partnered with WasteWell, a composting company owned by co-founder Jen Panaro, to host a three-part Sustainability Series for the Rachel Kohl Community Library Children’s Summer Program in the summer of 2021. The series included three lessons from our collection of educational units and hands-on projects to help kids connect with various issues related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
This series specifically included our How To Build a Soilarium, Exploring Methane Emissions from Landfills, and How To Build a Sprout House activities through programs led by RGK and free for library patrons.
Kennett Square Farmer’s Market
RGK collaborated with WasteWell and shared our lessons Build A Soilarium and Learning About Landfills with the KSQ Farmers Market visitors to give kids hands-on experience about learning the value of composting and the important role it plays in climate action.
