City Gardening Conference

I know it is cold outside, but spring is coming.  Each year the Jackson Heights Beautification Group brings a contingent of city gardeners to the NYC Parks Dept. Green Thumb gardening conference.  This year it is in midtown Manhattan.  The tickets are free, but sell out quickly.
Each year we meet and go together on the subway.  JHBG will provide your lunch if you RSVP by e-mail to  The next Saturday, we begin our weekly volunteer gardening at our 19 different garden spaces around Jackson Heights from 10 AM to 1 PM.
Classes are given in English and Spanish.
