From our organizers:
The theme of this year’s conference is rooted in BBG programs that reach beyond the Garden’s gates into the community. Lessons learned from participants in the Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest—celebrating its 25th anniversary this year—will be highlighted. Serving as a centerpiece for the day, a unique keynote address delivered by the garden mentors of the 300 East 25th Street Block Association will honor the power of intergenerational collaboration and neighborly connection. As ever, visitors will have the opportunity to network with dozens of NYC greening organizations in the Palm House.
