This year we are honoring Andrea Parker, Executive Director of the Gowanus Canal Conservancy, for her incredible contributions to the neighborhood.

All supplies will be provided! Please dress comfortably for the weather and our work together.

Please use this link to RSVP so we have an accurate idea of volunteer numbers.

Join us on April 2 for a Seed Celebration in the Park!
OSH Director of Gardens Sam Lewis & Garden Coordinator Angela Lombardo will facilitate a neighborhood seed swap. Diversify your home garden by bringing seeds or cuttings from your favorite plants to trade for something new to you. Nothing to swap this time? Leave a donation to support the gardens in exchange for what you take.
After the Swap, join Park Slope Parents for a Plant Lovers’ Meetup on the Little Lawn, and talk plants and gardens with other green thumbs. Non-members are welcome. If you want to join the Plant Lovers’ Meet-Up, please RSVP bit.ly/PSPPlantLovers_Apr2 so we know how many people to expect.
After the Meet Up, join artist Dario Mohr for the unveiling of his new installation “Ancestral Perennial” + a Happy Planting Day workshop honoring ancestors.
