After a long “winter” of planning we are finally ready to start construction on our Brownsville Farm site. Above is a prototype of the gorgeous multi-functional bench planters designed by GrowingCities. We built this in a small backyard in Greenpoint, but will be building beds over three times this size on the lot. And we need help!
March 4, 10, 11, 17, 24, 25 and 31.
April 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22.
Time: 10 – 5
Where: 514 Rockaway Ave at Sutter.
Bring: Safety goggles, gloves, water, lunch, sturdy shoes.
