Kids Corner

Habana Outpost
757 Fulton Street
If you’ve ever been to Habana Outpost you know it is one amazing place! The super cool Brooklyn eatery is totally run by solar power, they use rainwater for their plants and the bathroom, the food is delicious and the drinks even better. But what you probably didn’t know is that Habana Outpost is comprised of a few parts, one being Habana Works, a 501-C3 non-profit organization that provides free, hands-on programs that celebrate urban environmentalism as a means of contributing to an educated, happy and engaged community in downtown Brooklyn, created by Habana Outpost owner, Sean Meenan.

What does Habana Works do exactly? Way more than you could imagine. A major part of Habana Works is The Kid’s Corner. This is a weekend program that offers free, creative crafts and workshops that teach environmentalism, wellness and community to neighborhood children. All Kid's Corner activities are held outdoors on Saturdays and Sundays (from 12pm to 4pm, May through September) in the Habana Outpost courtyard. The Kids Corner staff creates recycled art with kids for FREE and will make your visit as a parent a much more enjoyable experience.

Are you an educator looking for a fun way to introduce environmentalism to a class? Habana Works is here for you! Come to Habana Outpost and have your class take a ride on the Human Powered Bike Blender, taste the difference between Chocolate mint and Apple Mint and learn how we harvest rainwater to flush the toilets! Tours are FREE and can be booked easily by emailing

If that’s not enough, on Tuesdays from 10am – 12pm the courtyard of Habana Outpost is transformed into a toddler wonderland complete with toys, water table and supervised art projects geared towards children 4 and under. Meet your neighbors and watch your babies make new friends.  Presented in conjunction with My Brooklyn Baby. What a great way to introduce your little one to their community!

Community building is what Habana Works is about and we want you to build it with us.

Come by the kids corner for these upcoming activities:
June 23 & 24 - Stick Mobiles
June 30 & July 1 - Nature Collage
