Fordham University Students Cleanup Bissel Gardens

An absolutely wonderful group of students from Fordham University came out to Bissel Gardens on April 8 for our 1st Spring Cleanup this year. They did a fantastic job. We appreciate their help and realize we couldn’t get planting this year without them.

Bissel Gardens has Volunteer Cleanups every 2nd Saturday of the month thru November and opportunities for new gardeners, especially veterans. Why don’t you join us!

Email Chuck Vasser for more info.

Bronx Park Speak Up 2017

02-DSC_0236

There are few things better than hanging out with a bunch of like-minded folks.  I had a great time at Lehman College February 25, 2017 at the Bronx Parks Speak Up. The Bissel Gardens crew was there in force as were 30 or so other Parks, Friends of and Community organizations.

The icing: Karen Washington managing the discussions and workshops. For a “greenie” it doesn’t get much better! Enjoy my Flickr album of the event.

About Community Greens

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view.
