Here’s the full release:



NYC’s Only Eco-Friendly Haunted House: Basement of Blood at Habana Outpost

Sean Meenan’s non-profit Habana Works invites you to celebrate Halloween the eco-friendly way, with a subterranean scarefest in the basement of Habana Outpost in Fort Green, Brooklyn. High school students from Brooklyn’s Green School are creating ghoulish scenes from everyday garbage, and will present a recycled haunted house that will send shivers up your spine. So come on down, the event is free and open to the public.

The Basement of Blood is the first project by Habana Works’ teen program, Break It Down. The program offers project-based internships to high school students that bring discarded resources back into use and on to the market. For the holiday season, the interns will produce craft items from the wood, metal and glass in Habana Outpost’s waste stream. Products made during the semester will be available for sale at Habana’s seasonal holiday Market.

Habana Works is a non-profit organization founded by Sean Meenan, owner of Habana Outpost, New York’s only solar-powered eatery. Habana Works offers free programs that educate, unite and engage our neighborhood in environmentally conscious thought and action. These programs use art, architecture, videography and design to instill a greater understanding of the community’s role in the betterment of the planet. Our programs include Urban Studio Brooklyn (USBK), Habana Academy and Garden Works.
