Let’s go to CONEY ISLAND!
Please join us for our June general meeting tomorrow, 6/18, 6:30pm, at Boardwalk Community Garden.
Because the garden is still closed and the gardeners are still working to get their garden back, we’ll be meeting in a boardwalk gazebo just outside the garden around 19th street. Take the D, F, N, or Q to Coney Island, head to the boardwalk, and make a right. You’ll find us just past the Brooklyn Cyclones Stadium. Here’s the location on Google Maps if you want exact directions.
In addition to our usual agenda items, which include hearing from attendees about the goings on in community gardens around the city, we’ll be sharing updates in the Boardwalk Community Garden case. The community gardeners and NYCCGC are planning to take part in the Mermaid Parade this Saturday, June 20, to draw attention to the ongoing case and we need your support!
SEE YOU TOMORROW ON THE BEACH!
