Community Greens Consulting

czv-blue-jacketWith over 30 years of community service and experience, Charles Vasser started something: COMMUNITY GREENS

Community Greens believes social conscience is partner to social justice and the greater good is always in finding and maintaining a community benefit balance.

Our goal is to pioneer projects that will further connect communities through creative ideas, strategic partnerships, vibrant outreach and campaigns that connect funders with evergreen folks looking to build a better village.

I am also a master gardener and composter who worked as a consultant for the NYCHA Gardening & Greening program for 10 years and at the Bronx Zoo in Human resources and Community Outreach for 20 years. Let me help you get your personal or community garden or front/back yard in shape either as a once a season activity or as regular scheduled maintenance. I prune, plant and positively green everything I can.

This site is a product of my online computer, writing, editing and outreach abilities. Please feel free to visit my other sites. My primary site link is

I am also a great Adult League and High School Boys & Girls Basketball referee. Need a Basketball or Flag Football referee? Give me a call or send me an email!

As the pandemic disrupts global food supply chains, people may have to depend more on locally grown food. Experts expect the number of people suffering through severe food shortages could swell to 265 million people in 2020.
Bissel Gardeners are glad they have been community gardening and raising food for themselves for more than 25 years. We hope when the NYC Pause In Place is lifted more folks will see the need for community gardens and will join us! Chuck the Gardener

Cream-style soups are a favorite for warm, soothing meals on cold winter nights. The addition of a cup or two of cooked beans can stretch canned or homemade soup into a complete, protein-rich meal in just minutes. Stir a can of drained rinsed white beans into tomato soup. Or try pinto beans added to cream of celery soup.
