Bill LoSasso at our next Round Table 2/24


Bill LoSasso, the new director of GreenThumb, will be featured at the next Gardens Rising Round Table, at 6:30pm on Wednesday, February 24, at the Neighborhood Preservation Center, located on 232 E.11th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. All interested parties are invited to participate.

Bill has just taken over as director of GreenThumb program of the NYC Department of Parks. GreenThumb is the largest community garden program in the country; it administers over 1,000 community and school gardens in New York City. 

Previously, Bill served as Executive Director of La Plaza Cultural de Armando Perez on Avenue C and 9th St. This marks the first time a community gardener has been tagged to head the GreenThumb program. We are very proud of Bill. Come to the Round Table to wish him well and share his vision.
