This summer we are working with two fantastic youth from the Green Guerillaz summer jobs program. Working with Haque and Claudio, we will be building composters at El Garden, an herb spiral, a wildflower garden and they will assist in designing our wildflower & pollinator sanctuary at 1278 Myrtle Avenue in Bushwick.
Additionally, BK ROT Founder, Sandy, is teaching two carpentry workshops to the younger Green Guerillaz Youth Tillers group. Two gardens in Bed-stuy, Shiloh Community Garden and Vernon T&T Community Garden, received brand-new 3-bin compost systems designed the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.
This summer’s partnership has been rewarding in a number of ways – check back for more pictures soon!
