The city has officially announced its intention to turn the Maple Street Community Garden into public land!
NYC Parks announced the completion of the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) certification for the Maple Street Community Garden, a crucial step in officially acquiring the greenspace. ULURP is a 7-month process that allows an official zone of use change for a piece of land within the city.
We will need as many gardeners as possible to show up for the ULURP meetings that are scheduled for a next few months. Don’t worry if you don’t understand ULURP, no one does. But this is a good site where you can learn more if you want.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to help us fight to preserve this beautiful space for everyone!
Location: 283 Maple Street (between Rogers Ave and Nostrand Ave)
This will be the first meeting where we discuss what to plant in the garden beds in Spring 2017. If you want to weighing in on that question, please come!
Detailed agenda TBA
Maple Street Community Garden needs your leaves!
The garden has a thriving 3-bin compost project that many people in the neighborhood contribute to. We have to balance the wet, green material (your veggie scraps) with dry, brown material. As you rake leaves over the next month, please consider dropping them off at the community garden.
The garden remains unlocked at all times. Open the gate and carry your leaves to the back left (i.e. Northwest) corner of the garden. You can drop your trash bags of leaves next to the compost bins.
If you want to get involved with our composting project, please email email@example.com
We’re having a potluck this Saturday September 24th from 2pm to 6pm.
Come enjoy the last warm days in the garden! Bring something to toss on the grill, something to drink, or a side dish to share.
Please go here to sign up and tell us what you’re planning to bring:
We’ll have a grill and start around 2pm. Please come! Even if you are not a garden member, this is a great way to meet people and get involved.
If you do plan to come, please let us know what you’re bringing. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
See you Saturday!
