Join us as we celebrate our 3rd Growing Season at Meg's Garden!
Learning Our Place 3:30 to 6:30 Thursday, May 30, 2019


3:30 pm to 4:30 pm – Spring Banquet – A Celebration of Our Place and Spring Harvest (Open to All) Join us at Meg's Garden to share in a Garden Grown Feast to celebrate the start of our 9th year of gardening and our 3rd year of growing at our beloved school and community garden. We're partnering with Craig Rothman and the Dietetics, Food and Nutrition Program at nearby Lehman College to serve our own Spring Harvest Garden Pizzas along with with our JBOLC Garden Kombucha Punch. We'll also be celebrating the arrival of our New York Compost Box just donated and delivered by Debbie Ullman of New York Compost. Learn how you can become a part of how we compost with Corinne Coe of Terra Nova Compost. Tour our permaculture garden and edible forest, meet our students and experience the wonders of Meg's Garden and Edible Forest.

10:00 am to 1:00 pm, Saturday, June 1 - Caring For Our Place - Volunteer to Care for our Neighboring Street Trees. (Open to All) Meet at Meg's Garden and help us to clear tree pits of weeds and debris, spread compost and mulch, and give our trees some love and care. David George Haskell, author of The Song of Trees, has made the claim that street trees that are planted by, cared for, nurtured and supported by a community have a guaranteed survival rate as opposed to a half survival rate of neglected trees. We'll be caring for our trees along Goulden Ave and near the Lehman College Campus. Snacks and our famous garden tea will be served!
After Spring Banquet

THANK YOU ALL, who came to our Spring banquet to learn our place and care for our street trees and munched on our famous garden pizzas, homemade applesauce, cookies and KLDP!
