Roosevelt Island Garden Club Invites You To Visit, Relax, Enjoy the Plants, Birds & Nature On Weekends 9 AM to 7 PM - Check Out The Bamboo Forest, Goldfish Pond And Hundred Year Old Cottonwood Tree

Reported last week that the Roosevelt Island Community Garden was open to the public on weekends from 9 AM - 7 PM

Last July 4, I spoke with Roosevelt Island Garden Club (RIGC) member and Green Roosevelt Island Neighbors (GRIN) founder Anthony Luongo about the Community Garden. Mr Longo is rightly proud of the work done by RI Garden Club members and wants to share this spectacular Roosevelt Island oasis with the community. According to Mr Longo, at the Community Garden:

Everybody can come and just relax, look at nature....

... Children are able to smell that the food comes out of the ground and not from the grocery store...

...  we've got a beautiful cottonwood tree gear that has just been around for probably a century or more. We've got our own little ecosystem out here not to mention 132 individual plots and a common area in the back where we do a lot of the work and the composting in addition to a little bamboo forest and a goldfish pond.

So we welcome you to come out at any time during the weekend or pop by and see if you know anyone else here.

Visit us. Come with ideas let us know what you're interest in.

We hope to see you soon.


The RIGC adds:
The front common area is quiet place to relax a bit and RIGC has benches in every border area for guests to sit down and enjoy the plants, birds, and butterflies. Visitors of all ages are welcome. Reminders: please stay on the main gravel paths

Make sure to check out the RIGC Bamboo Forest


and


Goldfish Pond - it's quite a site and you'll almost forget you're in NYC.
