NEWS & EVENTS
Sunday: Come Plant Seeds and Launch Edible Garden Lab

Seed Planting Workshop — Sunday, April 19, Noon – 2 p.m.
Learn how to start a variety of herb and vegetable seeds in cold frames to plant out later in spring and establish a special
Chinese-Italian kitchen garden that celebrates the diverse culinary heritage of our neighborhood. Both children and adults are encouraged to attend. FREE.

Seed Planting is the first in a series of workshops offered by Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden as part of this year's season-long gardening initiative Edible Garden Lab. Let's engage with the Garden as a living laboratory and learn how to cultivate a vital green space that also provides a nutritious resource for the neighborhood and more opportunity for everyone to bring the Garden harvest home to enjoy.

NYC Community Garden Update

Bike Ride for Gardens at Risk — Saturday, April 18, 2– 6 p.m.
(Ride begins under the arch at Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, and ends at Elizabeth Street Garden.)
Join Public Space Party and 596 Acres as New Yorkers ride to visit and learn more about five gardens under threat by private developers — Maple Street Community Garden, Roger That Community Garden and Eldert Street Garden in Brooklyn and Siempre Verde Garden and Children's Magical Garden in Manhattan. Large-scale community support can help advocate for these private properties to be acquired by the City and transferred into Parks Department inventory to remain valuable community resources. Join the Facebook event for details.
