Upcycle!

In Marine on St. Croix we take our recycling very seriously. Starting this week, Marine Mills Folk School is not only recycling, but we’re ‘upcycling!’

Upcycling is defined as creatively recycling something into a product or use with more value. We’re excited to work with the City of Marine on St. Croix to turn the empty, former elementary school building into a creative, vibrant hub of hands-on learning.

We’re busy cleaning and organizing our new classrooms and we can’t wait to have our artist instructors share their knowledge of traditional arts & craft skills with you. Come join us at any of the varied and fun classes we’re offering this Fall.

Speaking of upcycling and recycling, any chance you’ve got some of the following you’d be willing to donate to our growing folk school? (please understand we may gently refuse if no longer need).
 Small Sofa                 Wifi Enabled Printer        Picnic Table

FYI, speaking of volunteers, we use Sign-Up Genius (free app) for any and all volunteer help needed. Please check us out and stay tuned!
