The weather for this week in NYC is looking gorgeous–perfect timing for GreenThumb to host the the sixth-annual Open Garden NYC event that opens the gates of hundreds of community gardens to New Yorkers for a weekend of free activities and exploration!
And with the start of June this week and the summer quickly approaching, what better time than to spend as much time outdoors as we can?!
Tbis weekend, hundreds of gardens across the city will be seeking out people to contribute a few extra hands for garden projects–from planting produce and flowers to hosting events. Beginners and experienced gardeners alike are welcome!
The GreenThumb community gardens are all volunteer run and serve as a great way for people to come together over growing food and community, meet new people, and explore some of the city’s best green spaces.
Events across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and The Bronx include things such as cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts, garden tours, music, composting workshops, storytelling, and more.
Open Garden NYC is taking place on Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4. More information including a full list of free weekend events can be found here.
