Build a Community Garden in Far Rockaway with Transition New York City

Take the A train to the Beach 67th St. stop and walk three blocks north.
On Sat. May 23, NYC Transition activists and permaculturists built a community garden with raised beds, alongside Rockaway community members building back from Sandy devastation. Walls of the beds are made of wooden boards donated by Build it Green, and burlap bags from coffee roaster White Coffee filled with wood chips from NYC Parks Dept., and filled with plants donated by Home Depot. This method can be used to create gardens on other urban sites anywhere with soil in need of remediation. See pictures at our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TransitionNYC/
Come out and join our second workday. We’ll plant more raised beds, and put up flyers for the Convergence at Rockaway retail stores.
Burlap bags have amazing properties, and volunteers will be able to take home a stack of burlap bags to their own gardens.
Let us know if you plan to join us on 6/13 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
