Intrepid gardeners,I'm disappointed, but I'll admit I wasn't looking forward to slogging through the rain with my camera. I am looking forward to the Green With Envy Tour of Bed-Stuy Community Gardens next Saturday, October 4.
With a forecast of some serious rain, we've come to a decision to cancel this Saturday's (9/27/08) bqlt "Riding out the Harvest" bike/van tour.
Save your energy for next week's (10/4/08) "Green(e) with Envy," another great opportunity to explore the world of community gardening.
Classon Ful-Gate Block Association Community Garden, one of nine Brooklyn community gardens on this Saturday's tour.
