Join us in the garden this Saturday, March 13th at noon for the regular second Saturday garden meeting. Weather permitting, we will assess the work that lies ahead and even get hands on. We will set dates for spring activities and discuss topics you bring to the table. If the weather does not allow us to be in the garden, we will meet on the third floor of TRUCE.
We get to plant trees in the sidewalk! Please lend a hand this Sunday, March 14th at noon.
We need volunteers early this spring to put together a new tool shed and a hoop greenhouse . Let us know when you can lend a hand.
Don’t forget the GreenThumb conference on March 20 at Hostos, a fantastic event.
Can’t make the meetings? Let us know how you are doing and what you would like to see this spring.
Ready for spring 2010
It’s time for the annual plant sale, and the form is here. Once a year, GrowNYC (formerly CENYC) offers gardens in the city the opportunity to order vegetable starts and some flowers at wholesale prices. This is a great opportunity to get some strong plants to start the season with and for us to hold a plant sale to benefit the garden. First we need your help with ordering the plants and picking them up later in the spring. Please send us your recommendations, pledge to buy a flat of plants or volunteer to pick up on one of the following days and times:
