Greening Day 2003

Saturday, April 26, 2003, 9 AM-1 PM

Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Third & Pacific

On April 26, residents from across Boerum Hill will again salute spring with an official day of greening. For the third year in a row, this event will launch the neighborhood greening activity from Schermerhorn to Warren and from Court to Fourth Avenue. Neighbors will be cleaning and mulching their tree pits, sprucing up their front gardens and filling their window boxes.

The day begins with an opening ceremony at 9 AM, at Third & Pacific (behind the Bethlehem Lutheran Church), when Borough President Marty Markowitz kicks off the day. Once again, there will be free mulch and compost, so residents are reminded to bring extra-strong trash bags to carry it back to their blocks. Coffee and bagels will be available for all. And information will be available on tree pit care, tree pit planting, window boxes, street-hardy plants, etc. The ceremony will be brief, because Greening Captains will need to get back to their individual blocks and focus their energies there.

Once again, Greening Day has been coordinated to coincide with the Annual Hoyt Street Garden Plant Sale, which will take place on April 26 & 27, at 110 Hoyt Street (corner of Pacific).
