Tour Brooklyn community gardens this Saturday, July 26

El jardin esta abierto / The garden is open
EL JARDIN ESTA ABIERTO

This is a reminder that the second leg of the Green With Envy Tour of Brooklyn community gardens is this Saturday, July 26. Tour Two kicks off at 10am from the Brooklyn Bear's Pacific Street Garden, in the triangle at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Pacific Street in Park Slope, near the Atlantic Avenue station.

This is an opportunity to hear about the history of Brooklyn's community gardens, speak with gardeners at each of the gardens, and learn how they organize and operate.

I posted 160 photos from Tour One two weeks ago. Tour Two promises to be just as extensive and interesting.

Did you see the AM NY article that came out in print and online on Monday 7/21 on composting and feature a number of the Carlton Avenue gardeners?

The print version was short and the online article much longer.
