Let’s Build Some Raised Beds!!

by Ryan Watson on

Some very exciting things are happening at the 61 Franklin Street Garden, Greenpoint’s newest community open green space. Spring is here, the sun is shining and flowers are starting to pop! In the last month, we’ve recieved support from Community Board 1, developed a preliminary design for the garden, our request for donated wood from BuildItGreen has been approved and we’re on track to schedule a build day for sometime in April or May! The next organizing meeting will take place this Saturday, April 6th at goodyoga (73 Calyer Street) at 2:00pm. RSVP for the event on our Facebook page so we’ll know how many to expect.

Hope to see you there!
