No Impact Man

Follow the Manhattan-based Beavan family as they abandon their high consumption 5th Avenue lifestyle and try to live a year while making no net environmental impact, meaning no trash, no electricity, no cars, no toilet paper, no TV, and no buying anything new for an entire year. How do we cope with the constant stress and intermittent crises of such a rigorous way of living? Or, perhaps, when life is pared down, do some things become unexpectedly better and even easier?

Community Class

Delve into a new creative skill with your fellow community members and WonderArts! These classes are fun for all levels and encourage creative exploration in a positive learning environment.
