Partnership with the 5 Gyres Institute.
Plastic in the world’s oceans and around the world has captured wide public attention, resulting in campaigns for policy change, producer responsibility for reducing waste, and a wave of innovation coming from small and large companies to shift culture to zero waste. Leap Lab will partner with 5 Gyres on expeditions to bring stakeholders out to sea to study and understand the problem and solutions first hand.
Partnership with Brian's Orchard
The community will grow food to demonstrate what it takes for a community to be self-sufficient. Food security in urban centers is essential, as many communities live in food deserts, where fresh and healthy food is practically and economically unavailable. Brians Orchard has invited Leap Lab to partner to help construct and distribute garden boxes to the community.
LEAP LAB FUTURE
Until we find a building to house our exhibits, we will build partnerships with each of the 5 themes of Leap Lab.
In the future, we envision exhibit halls, working farms, solar fields and a herd of triceratops dinosaurs walking through the building.
Keeping soil, plants, and pollinators flourishing is serious stuff, so we also made a point of using the same natural, ecologically-sound cedar we use in all our Vermont-made raised and elevated garden beds. Easy to assemble too: simply insert each cedar board into a slot on the aluminum corner, fasten with screws, and you're ready to plant!
