The Tenement Gardeners of the New Forsyth Conservancy Looking for More Volunteers

The Tenement Gardeners of the New Forsyth Conservancy are looking for more volunteers assist with the first park renewal project of 2018, and we need your help.

This project is different from our routine weekly maintenance. It is a focused project with a lasting impact, and we can’t do it without additional support. Our objective is to rebuild and paint the three gates at the entrance to each of our three plots in Sara D Roosevelt Park. As you can see, some of them really need love and tender care.

Participation in this project will put you in direct contact with the history of park activism of the 1980’s. It is also a great way to be a part of the Lower East Side community dialogue- not to mention a powerful way to make connections to, say, the walking tours. These gates are at the intersection of class, race, city  bureaucracies and grass roots activism. Come see for yourself and be a part of a positive change in the neighborhood.

We will meet at 6pm on Thursday July 12th at the garden in Sara Roosevelt Park on Delancey Street (south) between Forsyth and Chrystie three front plots.

Please call Sarah Tomasewski or me, and we’ll give you directions to the site.

Again, we really need help to see this project through. Indeed, the New Forsyth Conservancy could use some sustained volunteer power, so… Join on!
