Starting on June 26, Magic Box Productions and the Harrison Public Library System offered environmental media arts mini-camps, where young participants had the opportunity to learn interesting documentary and photography techniques. Students age 8 to 16 learned the importance of being environmentally conscious in a world of dwindling resources, and they used media arts to demonstrate the importance of community action.
For the environmental documentary mini camp, students interviewed Helen Meurer, compost and worm farm expert; Miriam Haas, Founder of Down to Earth Farmers Market; Amy Benefore, founder of the West Harrison Community Market and Danielle Colavito, gardener in-residence at the Harrison Library.
Special thanks to the West Harrison Library and Harrison Public Library for providing this fun learning experience for the community.
