Long Island City and Astoria
I grow food on my window sill and in a community garden. But I am starting a new semi-shady garden in Long Island City with seniors.
Jacob Riis Garden Project
A group of seniors want to grow food and beautify a large, semi-shady, fenced-in area within the Queensbridge Houses. The property is on NYCHA property, so there are lots of constraints. But we are going to start planting in May.
I've got a plot at Two Coves Community Garden, and I'm helping to start a garden at the Jacob Riis Settlement in Queensbridge.
