Reminder: Gardens Rising Round Table
this Thursday, January 14
Gardens Rising’s next round-table will take place Thursday, January 14. The round-tables feature experts, stakeholders and public in a brainstorming session to build nature-based and green infrastructure to increase permeability in the Lower East Side of New York City.
This week’s round-table features:
- Susannah Drake, dlandstudio
- Andy Stone, Director, NYC Trust for Public Land
- Carlos Martinez, Assistant Director, NYC GreenThumb
- JK Canepa, Community Activist
- Fred Levrat, Professor of Architecture, Pratt Institute
We meet from noon until 2:00 p.m. at the Neighborhood Preservation Center, located on 232 E.11th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. All interested parties are invited to participate.
Gardens Rising is inspired in Super Storm Sandy, a project funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development through the NY Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery to control flooding in vulnerable city areas with nature-based infrastructure in our NYCCGC community gardens.
ALSO: This coming Saturday we are having a very important meeting and we need the support and cooperation of every garden in Community Board 3. You are all invited! Please come and help us make Gardens Rising a success.
This entire project is dependent on the cooperation and help of each community garden. We will meet on Saturday, January 16, 2 to 5 pm, at the 6th Street Community Center, E. 638 6th St between Avenues B & C, on the first floor.
