Reaping Nature Productions brings Recycling Program to Libraries

Press Release – Forsyth County Public Library “Likel”s to Recycle


The Forsyth County Public Library is offering great programs this summer for children, teens and adults.  One of the many programs they’re offering is an educational and entertaining program for children from Reaping Nature Products, I “Likel” to Recycle.

“Reaping Nature presented their recycling program in April at our Sharon Forks location,” said Vanessa Cowie, Youth Services Coordinator, Forsyth County Public Library.  “I was impressed by the information their program contained and their ability to hold the attention of a wide age range.  Our patrons seemed to enjoy their high-energy approach!”

Reaping Nature Productions founded by Forsyth County residents, Denise Carleton and Mary Nix a/k/a Petunia Garner provides on-site environmental education programs for children ages preschool through fifth grade on a variety of environmental topics, including recycling, water, energy and literacy/graffiti.

The Forsyth County Public Library is offering more than 500 programs this year to residents.  All of their programs are free to the public and are supported by the Forsyth County Public Library, Literacy Forsyth and the Forsyth County Public Library Friends & Advocates.

Reaping Nature’s programs are scheduled for Thursday, June 30 at 10:30am at the Hampton Park Library and at 2:00 at the Sharon Forks Library.  Listeners will learn that recycling is not only good for our environment, but for our local economy and provides jobs.  At the conclusion of the program, listeners will join Reaping Nature’s live character, Petunia Garner, in singing her original song, Another Recycling Rap.

“Teaching recycling to children at an early age is an important step if we want to increase recycling habits in adults,” said Denise Carleton of Reaping Nature.  “As environmental stewards in the communities where we work and live, we’re excited to promote our educational programs whenever possible.”
