Why Does Soil Get Treated Like Dirt?August 18, 2018
10:30 AM - 11:15 AM
A Perfect Earth Project Workshop: Children Ages 5-12
Aug 18, 2018 10:30 am
Cosponsored by the South Fork Natural History Museum and the Perfect Earth Project
Soil is alive! Take a look in the Perfect Earth Project microscope and peek into the world beneath your feet. After learning about insects, and how they protect grass and plants, we will make Soil Food Bombs with compost and some special beneficial little bugs.
Don’t treat soil like dirt. Feed the living soil – it’s at the bottom of everything green and growing! Perfect Earth Project, based in East Hampton, NY, promotes PRFCT (toxic-free) lawns and landscapes for the health of people, their pets, and the planet; raises consciousness about the dangers of synthetic landscape chemicals and educates homeowners, landscapers, and businesses in nature-based alternatives that achieve beautiful results at no extra cost. www.perfectearthproject.org
Advance reservations is required for this event.

The Dirt on Soil HealthAugust 18, 2018
12:30 PM - 01:30 AM
A Perfect Earth Project Workshop: Adult/Teen
Aug 18, 2018 2:00PM-3:00PM
Cosponsored by the South Fork Natural History Museum and the Perfect Earth Project.
Join Perfect Earth Project to get all of the good dirt on soil health! It’s the new frontier.
Healthy soil means healthy, strong and resilient plants, no need for chemicals. Learn the importance of soil tests: how to send soil samples for testing and more important how to interpret the results!
Take a look into the guts of your garden as we explore the soil biome under the microscope. Learn about the world of “compost tea”: how to make it, how to know when it is good. Get familiar with the equipment, the process and the benefits of adding compost tea to your organic gardening routine by making your own or becoming an educated consumer.
Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call the SoFo Museum (631) 537-9735.

PRFCT NON EventSeptember 1, 2018
The big question this summer….. Is Perfect Earth giving another fabulous music picnic? Not quite, we have a new idea.
How can we raise money, and awareness, and also address our concerns about the time and resource it takes to put on a big event. We worry about the time it takes us away from our mission, the unavoidable garbage, the fossil fuel, and, don’t we all have benefit fatigue anyway?
Enter the the NON Event.
We will be selling tickets to NOT leave home, feel good about supporting us and address your eco-anxiety by staying off the road. We hope you will jump in early and buy one soon as a NON event committee member. So, don’t save the date; choose your own time to have a picnic or just sit there and appreciate your own PRFCT place.
Every ticket purchaser will receive a virtual picnic swag basket; Silver or Gold leaf ticket purchasers also get a set(s) of 4 limited edition organic cotton napkins with a special Cindy Sherman image. A Picnic Table purchase also includes a Billy Sullivan platter and Clifford Ross throw from our past PRFCT picnics.
Your virtual picnic swag basket will include a special picnic playlist selected by our musical director Jenni Muldaur, seasonal recipes, plus an intro to Shinrin-yoku and games for maximizing your outdoor time.
Then, wherever you are, join the party at #PRFCTNonEvent on social media. Be nowhere and everywhere. How PRFCT!
