Please drop off canned vegetables and dry goods at the Garden during fall hours: noon – 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on weekends, weather permitting.... Thanksgiving is just around the corner.

HIGHLIGHTS: P.S. 1 Penny Harvest Team Field Trip

In support of their Common Cents Penny Harvest project, elementary school students from neighborhood P.S. 1 visited the Garden to check up on the flowering perennials they planted in spring and plant daffodil bulbs they received from New Yorkers for Parks. The students also picked the remaining garden fruits, collected seeds, divided plants and propagated cuttings for next season.

Thank you to the team and Eleanor Christian and Harriet Savitz, P.S. 1 Penny Harvest teachers/coaches.

If your local school group may be interested in an event in the Garden, please contact us.

See you in the Garden.
