Plants, Pollinators, and People

June 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

NYC Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them!

Come out for a walking tour and cocktail hour on the green roof during NYC Pollinator Week. Join green thumbs from Growing Chefs in a seed packet-making activity using saved seeds from Eagle Street Rooftop Farm’s wildflower collection, look at photos by Annie Novak from her studies of Monarch migration in Mexico, talk with butterfly blogger Rebecca Reitz, bee experts from The Honeybee Conservancy, and native bee guy Charles Mohr.

Brooklyn Gin will be mixing their version of the ‘Bees Knees’ cocktail using local honey.

This event is made possible with generous support from the Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund and the Office of the New York State Attorney General and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
