GreenThumb Grow Together March 29, 2014 at Hostos


The NYC Parks GreenThumb Annual Grow Together Conference has to be one of my favorite events of the year. All of my gardening friends seem to officially come out of hibernation for the event and it gives us a great way to catch up and discuss plans for the upcoming growing season. This year’s conference was the 30th and that clearly demonstrates NYC Parks dedication to the other side of green; what other people grow and care for. Bravo for another great event. And the workshops continue . . . Go to the NYC Parks GreenThumb website for upcoming workshops and events.

You can find photos from the event last year in my Flickr photostream in the GreenThumb Grow Together Photo Set.
