Lowline Lab up and running!

Posted by The Lowline (Creator)

Wow- what a crazy few weeks we've had!  We have officially opened the Lowline Lab, and over 5,000 people have visited already!  Our Young Designers Program has also begun to gather steam-- we have over 1,000 local kids signed up for innovative science education visits.  Thank you to everyone who made it for our opening events, and for anyone who hasn't come yet, please visit!  We'd love to show you what you helped build.

The address of the Lowline Lab is 140 Essex Street, between Rivington and Stanton Streets in NYC, and we are free and open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 10-4pm.  Our weekdays are almost entirely booked up with school visits! 

We are midway through sending out the terrarium rewards-- our friend and local artist (Huy Bui of Plant-in-City) has been hard at work building each one lovingly by hand!  We hope to send all terrariums by Thanksgiving so keep a look out for that.

Stay tuned also for news on Adopt a Plant and other key initiatives and events.  If you're in NYC this weekend, pop by in costume tomorrow for some Halloween treats.

Check out the cool photos below, and please come visit us at the Lab soon!

      I'm just got to realizing I never got any of my rewards. Is there an update I didn't get?
