The Harvest Festival is the culmination of Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden's Edible Garden Lab neighborhood-led initiative, which began in spring to engage both children and adults with the Garden as a living laboratory and has been funded in part by a generous grant from Citizens Committee for New York City.

Volunteer Orientation, before Harvest Festival —
Saturday, Oct. 24, 11 a.m. – Noon
Volunteers keep the Garden open for our community. The more volunteers there are, the more hours the Garden can be open. Volunteering is flexible and simply involves welcoming visitors for just ONE hour at a time. Some volunteers volunteer each week, and other less frequently. Become a volunteer.
