NYRP: Accepting Applications to Green Open Spacesby on
Another opportunity abounds to beautify and green North Brooklyn. The New York Restoration Project (NYRP) has a program called, “Gardens for the City.” They’re currently accepting applications for projects to beautify schools as well as general open spaces with the intent of building community across all five boroughs.
From the NYRP website: “Community members complete our annual application to help them revitalize a public space and after a selection process, NYRP lends materials, muscle and expertise.” For accepted projects, NYRP provides “trees; raised planter beds; garden amenities and furnishings; shrubs, perennials and bulbs; and stewardship materials for care and watering of trees.”
The deadline for general open space applications is Jan 11, 2013. School applications are accepted on a rolling basis. For more details visit the NYRP: Gardens for the City page.
