Walking Tour of East Village Community Gardens
Join us on a tour of distinct community gardens that showcase the plants, people, and cultures that make these East Village oases such a vital part of the fabric of the neighborhood. Learn about the history, maintenance, and importance of these gardens, and also meet the gardeners who make it possible to enjoy their beauty.
About Green Guerillas: Green Guerillas uses a unique mix of education, organizing and advocacy to help people cultivate community gardens, sustain grassroots groups, grow food, engage youth, and address issues critical to the future of their gardens. As community garden leaders serve their communities and act as catalysts for community change, they face organizing and organizational challenges that can be daunting. Green Guerillas helps them take on these challenges and cultivate community all year long. Green Guerillas helps garden leaders reach out to their neighbors, recruit new members, create group structures, organize events, and make important alliances with each other and with other grassroots groups in their neighborhoods.
This is a 2-hour walking tour, please wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. You should bring water to stay hydrated. We will be on our feet the entire time! Co-sponsored by Green Guerillas. So popular, we’re doing it again! But space is extremely limited.
