10th Annual Harlem Green Community Garden Tour

| August 11th, 2015

Saturday, August 29th, 2015 – 9 am to 5 pm  

The FREE tour will start at 9 am with a sumptuous breakfast at the J.D. Wilson Garden at 219 W. 122nd Street and end at 5 pm with a traditional Harlem Barbecue at the William A. Harris Garden at 153rd Street and St. Nicholas Avenue. Visitors will see 15 of Harlem’s amazing green gems lovingly tended by comitteed community gardeners.

As one gardener put it, “These are more than just gardens; they are community institutions”– offering educational programs, art, health and wellness, theatre, music and story-telling, canning, fermenting, and much more.

People are encouraged to bike or walk. However, thanks to the NYC Parks Department, a bus will be available. Event sponsors: GreenThumb and NYC Parks, Harlem Gardens, The William A. Harris Garden, the NYC Community Garden Coalition, and Project Harmony. Info: (212) 662-2878. (Rain date: Sunday, August 30th)
