Emma Lazarus Students, “The Hort”, and the Park’s Department Gardener Working on Hester Plots

From The Hort’s* Pam Ito:

“High school students from Emma Lazarus on Hester Street woke up early on their DOE day off to work in Sara Roosevelt Park yesterday.  With support from Council Member Margaret Chin and oversight from Park Department gardener Kaitilin, 18 English language learners planted four dozen perennials.  The students weeded in three areas along Forsyth, then planted in two. Please stop by and say hello to the lirope, vinca, echinaces, bee balm and hostas!
