Living Green at the Seay House – April 16th

You know, it’s always annoyed me when I’ve heard people spout that “only in the last 20 or thirty years have we started to be aware of the fact that we need to recycle and reduce our footprint….” blah blah blah. I remember my great-aunts and great-uncles. They lived through the depression. They saved anything that they could reuse. Milk jugs became water containers, glass and metal jars were reused. Even a barn hinge got reused to fix the car door! Let’s face it our pioneering ancestors may not have called it living green or recycling, but they made do with what they had and made the most of it!

This weekend at the Seay House there’s an event that takes a look at what it meant to reduce/reuse/recycle before it was a popular catch phrase.

Living Green at the Seay House
April 16, 2011; 10:00-4:00

Help us open the season with an Earth Day inspired event. Learn what it meant to reduce, re-use, and recycle before we even thought of Earth Day. Make cereal boxes into your own coaster. Examine the lifestyle of the Seay sisters who followed a such practical lifestyle that they had money to lend! Living Green is from 10:00-4:00.

If you miss this event, be sure to join us another time. The Seay House is open every third Saturday of the month, April-October, except July, from 10:00-4:00 and by appointment.
