Happy Cinco de Mayo!
On this rainy day I popped by the garden to check on my seedlings (doing fantastic) and I noticed a wet and fading flyer for some upcoming activities to support the local Brooklyn Greenway Initiative.
This Saturday, May 9th at 10am you can lend a hand at BGI's monthly cleanup along the new Colombia Street section of the greenway. Tools, trash bags and work gloves provided. Meet at BGI's office, 145 Colombia Street, between Kane and Degraw. All ages welcome! RSVP to bmccormick(at)brooklyngreenway.org. This same event will also take place at 10am on Saturday, June 13th (every 2nd Saturday of every month.)
This year's New View benefit is Thursday, June 18,2009. Celebrate with BGI with drinks, food, and live music at another new waterfront destination along the future route of the Greenway! All the details on the benefit will be posted on the event page at brooklyngreenway.org so check back now and again.
And if you go to the clean-up this Saturday, I'll see you there!
