Tenement Museum Staffers revive the Forsyth Garden Conservancy south of Delancey in Sara Roosevelt Park

Despite the many hours put in by Park workers and volunteers from M’Finda Kalunga and Elizabeth Hubbard Memorial Gardens to keep it in good shape this area of the Park has resisted efforts to maintain it in good shape.

Now a chance at reclaiming this part of Sara Roosevelt Park with a committed group of volunteers from the Tenement Museum. They will continue the work until we’ve rebuilt and reclaimed the former beauty of the Forsyth Garden Conservancy plots.

Thanks to Park Manager Terese Flores and the work of the original builders of this GreenThumb Garden since the early 80’s.

Volunteers from the Chinatown Y also dropped by to lend a hand!

Much thanks to everyone and a few before and after photos!
