Green Festival Speakers
Rose Boomsma, a native of Madison, Wisconsin, was an intern with DC's Department of Public Works this summer. This internship provided students with knowledge and experience about recycling and sustainability. This fall, along with being a Howard University student, Rose will be starting a recycling program at a public charter school and promoting the academic and environmental benefits of sustainability education in DC. Rose sees sustainability education as a community building opportunity and as a music student, she sees sustainability as something that is relevant to people from all walks of life.
