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.
