The Gowanus Canal Conservancy join forces with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to beautify the Gowanus!
11am - 2pm on June 26th at the Gowanus Canal, 2nd Ave between 5th St & the Canal.
We'll be constructing a compost bin and holding a composting workshop and education seminar in partnership with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We will also be planting trees, shrubs and flower beds as well as mulching, weeding, removing trash and debris, relocating, preparing and maintaining Conservancy nursery plants and finally, installing bird houses.
