Green Guerillas wrapped up our second East Village Community Garden Walking Tour on Saturday, October 6th. It has been our pleasure this summer to help more than 60 people experience the beauty, culture, and history of the unique community gardens in the East Village. The Liz Christy Garden is looking better than ever. We could think of worse ways to spend a Saturday afternoon.
At the end of August, Green Guerillas organized a spirited celebration to mark the end of the 2012 Youth Tillers program. Our 10 amazing youth tillers capped off a great summer of gardening, farming, composting, and food justice by spending an afternoon in the Phoenix Community Garden in Ocean-Hill Brownsville with GGs staff and community gardeners. We were pleased to give these future farmers and leaders the recognition they deserved before they went back to school or went off to college.
