Present Abundance/Harvest Celebration Week at The Clinton Garden
October 27, 2015 @ 10:30 am - October 29, 2015 @ 5:00 pmFree
You are welcome to join us as we celebrate the harvest moon, the sun, the bountiful fruits and vegetables of the earth, and the precious water that sustains our life during a series of events in and around the little piece of land we call The Clinton Garden.
On Tuesday, October 27, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Roman Guaraguaorix (Redhawk) Perez will lead a gathering of students and community in a ceremony of thankfulness at The Clinton Garden. Redhawk was born in the mountains of Kiskeya (Dominican Republic) and presently resides in Brooklyn, NY. He is an accomplished indigenous Taino artist, lecturer, storyteller, drummer, singer and respected community/spiritual leader. He is the Kacike (chief) for Maisiti Yukayeke Taino; a tribe of the Taino Nation.
On Wednesday, October 28, from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm, The Environmental Affairs Club of DeWitt Clinton High School will sponsor a greenmarket fundraiser at The Clinton Garden for our campus and neighborhood community. Support the garden and our club’s environmental activities that include our annual overnight tree planting trip to the Catskill Mountains by purchasing local vegetables and fruit including those grown in our very own Clinton Garden. By shopping and eating local, we all benefit.
On Thursday, October 29, DeWitt Clinton Sustainability students will be heading to Van Cortlandt Park for a tour of the park’s water resources. Meet up with us at the Van Cortlandt Ecology Center at 10:30 am or speak to me if you’re interested in chaperoning for this wonderful experience in our own local wilds.
