Who needs Thin Mints when there’s a whole food forest in the backyard? The Ecological Cultural Initiative, an environmental nonprofit organization, wants to turn an abandoned, town-owned house in Hampton Bays into its headquarters and an educational meeting space, 27East reported. Before it became vacant, the shingled house at the southwest corner of Squiretown Park was the home of the Girl Scouts caretaker. “We would want to turn it into a model house,” said Marc Fasanella, the head of ECI. In addition to basic renovations, ECI’s environmental-friendly proposals include a system to collect rainwater, solar panels, and a food forest. The Southampton Town Board will see the official proposal next week. [27East]
