See below for info about the joint committee meeting – scheduled for May
7, 2012 –  about the  Demapping on Union Street between Driggs and N
12 Street.   As users of this corner of the McCarren Park, it is
important that we are part of the discussion.    Our community leaders
don’t always know the details of an area like locals like we do!

Thanks to Christine from the McCarren Park Dog Run for the 411!

Its been a mellow summer at the pile, thanks to the wild success of GrowNYC’s compost program in the Greenmarket…Thanks to funding through IOBY, we were able to partner with a few quality orgs on educational and stewardship programs this summer.  Enjoy the vista.
