Thank you Groundwork Hudson Valley for hosting NPW's Emerging Leaders on September 8th! The ELPers enjoyed a beautiful afternoon on their floating urban farm and environmental center on the Hudson River called the Science Barge.

The group heard from Brigitte Griswold, Groundwork Hudson Valley's Executive Director and NPW board member, and learned about GWHV's mission and wide-ranging services from sustainability education to youth leadership programs.

ELPers also received a fun tour of the Science Barge led by Jason Bonet, Sustainability Education Associate. The tour was filled with mind-blowing information about sustainable urban farming, including ways to aquafarm and some hilarious taste tests of edible plants. At the end of the tour, ELPers networked with some wine and a delicious spread of cheeses set up by Karen Tumelty, Director of Development. Special thanks to our sponsor Adam Kintish of M&T Bank. Stay tuned for the Class of 2023 Application announcement in early October.
