About this Event

Love plants? Love LIC? Join Newtown Creek Alliance and Hunters Point Parks Conservancy and the neighbors to care for the 48th Ave Median Meadows! These pollinator supporting gardens were planted in the fall of 2020 in collaboration and partnership with PS/IS 78 and Hunters Point Community Middle School to provide habitat for the local ecology and provide opportunities for the community to come together to celebrate and learn about urban ecology.

We will provide gloves, tools, safety vests, and guidance on how to help care for the new urban meadows.

All volunteers and staff are required to wear a mask during all events and practice safe social distancing. We recommend wearing weather-appropriate clothes and sturdy shoes, bring along your personal water bottle and sunscreen. There are no bathrooms on site but plenty of restaurants and shops nearby.
