NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Seed saving is a timeless way to keep food traditions alive, reduce materials costs, and to promote and protect biodiversity and food sovereignty. Participants will leave the workshop with a tool kit with information on how to build their own basic seed saving equipment and how to save and distribute seeds on a community scale. In preparation, we invite you all to save your seeds and catalogue them.  This workshop is presented by Eric-Michael Rodriguez, Curator of Living Cultivations and Farm Manager at Weeksville Heritage Center, in partnership with GreenThumb.

Please RSVP with Mr. Rodriguez at eric@weeksvillesociety.org or call (718) 756-5250 .
