I started a new project in May…
Was it a weed patch or a garden?? In late May I arrived on Roosevelt Island to start a community garden with the help of the students from PS217, The Child School, and Beacon After school Program. We worked hard to turn the soil over and make the beds ready for the baby plants, which were donated by the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation. After a few days of back breaking work, the kids and I found some semblance of a garden bed by following the designs of a previous garden. Many volunteers showed up almost over night and make their presence known.
On Roosevelt Island Day, we were inundated with marvelous volunteers and an assortment of plants, as Martha Kerrs Photo’s will attest…the day was SPECTACULAR!
