Big Meeting this Saturday, June 25 at 4pm

Gardens Rising is holding a General Meeting this Saturday, June 25 at 4pm at the Loisaida Center, 710 E. 9th St between Aves C & D.

The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the team Gardens Rising has contracted to produce the feasibility study and Master Plan for the first phase of the project. The feasibility study will determine where and what kinds of green infrastructures will be built in our community gardens.

The company awarded the contract is WE Design, a Brooklyn landscape architecture design firm. We Design was selected from the six firms that had submitted bids.

We Design is teaming up with eDesign Dynamics, a environmental engineering firm, and 3X3 Design, who will be working on community engagement for Gardens Rising. 

On Saturday we also will introduce Crystal Gaudio, the Gardens Rising Project Manager and Sarah Romanoski, our new Communications Chief. 

We are under a very tight schedule to have our feasibility study completed and approved by our Steering Committee by November. So beginning Monday, June 27, the WeDesign team will be conducting garden inspections and engagements with individual gardens.  These will be ongoing, daily visits.

Soon, we will be reaching out to your garden to schedule a day and time to meet with the team. We hope to have gardeners present to talk about specific issues and wants in your garden that may be addressed through Gardens Rising.

Please send a garden representative to Saturday's important meeting and be responsive to our request to visit your garden.

If your garden or group needs a meeting space, we have one that can be made available at 428 E.10th St between Aves C & D. Contact us for more information.
