NYCCGC General Meeting 7/19 in Harlem: Carrie McCracken TRUCE Community Garden

Please join us next Thursday, July 19, from 6:30 to 8:30pm, for our monthly meeting of gardeners from across the city to discuss topics ranging from neighborhood issues to city-wide policies. Come tell us what's going on in your garden!

This month we'll be visiting the Carrie McCracken TRUCE Community Garden in Manhattan, located on Saint Nicholas Ave between W 117th & W 118th. The Carrie McCracken Community Garden strives to be a green and welcoming space. Find directions here. Come at 6:15 to get a tour of the garden, and join if you live in the neighborhood!

This meeting continues NYCCGC's summertime tradition of taking our message of community garden unity to locations throughout the city - it's a great opportunity for all to connect with fellow gardeners and for us to hear firsthand what is affecting our gardens.
