We are seeking community gardens across the city to participate in the third annual Open Garden Day NYC by opening their gates to the public from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 (rain or shine). Your garden group can join by hosting a free activity or event for the public to enjoy. Activities can include arts and crafts, music performances, composting, planting, a food demonstration, or feel free to suggest your own activity. Last year, over 100 gardens participated, with activities such as making medicinal herbal products, holding a yoga class, learning about gardening, and hosting musical performances.
If you would like to participate, please fill out the form at bit.ly/OpenGardenDayNYC2020 by Friday, April 24. Participating gardens will receive support from NYC Parks GreenThumb with marketing and publicity.
