Celebrate summer in a lush urban oasis while supporting the community!
This Thursday July, 16 from 6:30PM-8:30PM, Franklin St Community Garden is hosting a cocktail party to support their Children’s Education Program.
For $20, you get 2 drinks, delicious local food, a raffle ticket for items donated by local Greenpoint businesses, and an evening of live music surrounded by greenery and good company.
The 61 Franklin St Garden is open! Ryan Watson, of GWAAP and Brooklyn Seed Company giddily unlocked the gate to show me the beautiful (and mugwort-filled) space this morning. Before the garden parties can begin, help is needed to pull up an entire lot overgrown with weeds. It’s super easy – just grab and pull, grab and pull.
If you’re looking for a productive morning in the great outdoors of Greenpoint, grab your gardening gloves and show up at the 61 Franklin St garden tomorrow – Saturday May 18 at 9:30am – and get to work!
It is this Sunday April 21, 2013 from 3-6pm at 59 Java St. Suggested donation is $10 and bring something to feed 6-10 people. Everyone is welcome and there will be plenty to eat and share.
FUN! EARTH! GARDEN!
At the Greenpointers we are all for MORE GREEN OPEN SPACES! There is a vacant lot at 59 Java St, which is managed by Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), that a few neighbors and rallying to make into a community garden. Sounds like a great idea! They are making a presentation to the Parks and Waterfront subcommittee of Community Board 1 on November 16th at 6:30pm at 435 Graham Ave. Let’s go and hear their plans and support this project to make Greenpoint more green.
