West Village Rooftop Summer soiree

  • Jul 9, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note that only members who have paid their annual fee can RSVP for this event.


Please join our next meetup on a very special private rooftop garden that has been 15 years in the making.

This hidden gem of a garden, right in the heart of Green Village is nearly 3000 square feet and has been a work-in-progress for over 15 years.

Our host and co-member Janna, who lives in the building is a professional landscape gardener who volunteers her expertise and time to keep the roof garden beautiful.

“We have accumulated plants over the years in both curious and utilitarian ways. For example, a lady in the building bought an Alberta spruce as a Christmas tree every year and placed it on the roof when the holiday was over, so we have a few of those. Our oak tree, I suspect was planted by a clever squirrel and no one had the heart to find a new home for it so it's still here. People wanted snacks on the roof so we have: Apple, pear and plum trees, blueberries, raspberries, grapes and kiwis. Joining for the summer are tomatoes, kale, squash and watermelons and sugar snap peas, lettuce, radishes and numerous herbs.

The list of plant varieties include: junipers, weigela, forsythia, hydrangea, trumpet vines, sweet peas, trumpet honeysuckle, cardinal vines, hyacinth bean vine, morning glories, bleeding hearts, columbine, misc. lilies and more...

I look forward to sharing the relaxed and rustic 350 Bleecker roof garden with everyone!”


I CAN’T WAIT to visit! How about you?

The garden has seating area’s and tables and chairs and Snacks / refreshments / booze always welcome.

Please remember to pay your annual fee of $6.00, in addition to the event fee of $5.00 if you want to attend this event. (disregard the annual fee notice if you are one of the 25 people who have already paid it)

    What a wonderful poetic evening. 360 degree city views, a gentle rain and company. If that was not enough we then had the pleasure of meeting the two woman that nurtured this beautiful oasis... one for 21 years and another for 15 years. Just perfect!
