Community Greens

People of all colors discussing evergreen ideas.

CZV with city scene

I learned to garden growing up in Morrisania, a neighborhood in the Bronx, and it was the best thing that could have happened to a kid in a city. It led to a rewarding green career and I still work in community gardens.

My other passion is basketball. Even though I’ve tried lots of things, including bicycle racing, basketball provides the right mix of excitement that keeps me active as a referee.

I am invested in the community between basketball and gardening and every so often, the games and gardens are in the same NYCHA development!

I cook clean and healthy and regularly post recipes on Community Greens. After all, I once directed a Cooking Program in East Harlem. As a vestige of my Journalism background, I carry a camera wherever I go. Check out some of my albums on flickr. Enjoy the site(s). Feel free to add your nickel to the quarter!

This site is an example of my online computer management, writing and editing abilities. Please feel free to explore my sites. My primary site with links is czvasser.com.

I am also a great Adult League and High School Boys & Girls Basketball referee. If you need a Basketball or Flag Football referee, or someone to run a basketball clinic or tournament, give me a call or send me an email.

Green Tips!

Bee proactive!

A few things you can do to help keep bees healthy:

  • plant different flowers that bloom throughout the season for the bees;

    • native plants and other perennials

    • bloom colors of yellow, white,  blue, and purple

  • watch for neonicotinoid-free note on plant tags- some tags will claim that insecticides were used for ‘your plant’s health’ (but NOT for the bees!)

  • leave the blossoms until they expire

  • plant plants with fragrant flowers with a long bloom season

  • consider early blooming plants for bees that have had little nourishment over the winter
