Description

Facilitated by the NYC Department of Records and GreenThumb

What did your community garden look like before it was a garden? Learn how to find historical images and records of your garden’s lot(s) to deepen the story about your garden’s history. This workshop will begin with an optional tour of the Municipal Library’s Feeding the City exhibit, featuring an unpublished WPA book’s records of the various ways food was brought into the City to feed New Yorkers. After the tour we will then head to the computer lab to learn and practice some research skills.

Optional Tour: 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Workshop: 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
