A part fun, part learning, part sharing event at the Joe Holzka Garden on Staten Island!

The community garden is featured in Eat Less Water: The Solution to Water Shortages is in the Kitchen, a new book highlighting how much water is used to produce the food and beverages we eat and drink. Author, Florencia Ramirez introduces us to farmers and food producers who use water-saving methods and offers recipes to use less water with our food choices.

The chapter, "Gardens and Water" features Staten Island's own master gardener, Lenny Librizzi.  Join Florencia and Lenny as they read excerpts from the book and discuss simple ways to save water in your kitchen and garden. Food made from ingredients grown in the community garden will be served.

All are welcome.
