Harlem's community gardeners will invite the public to share in the 10th anniversary tour of Harlem's miraculous, community-centered, grassroots-developed green oases. Starting at 9 a.m. with a sumptuous breakfast at the J.D. Wilson Garden on 122nd Street, and ending at 5 p.m. with a traditional Harlem cookout and celebration at the William A. Harris Garden, 153rd Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, the tour will take in over fifteen of Harlem's amazing green gems.
Attendees are encouraged to bicycle or walk the tour; however a bus will transport folks who cannot walk or use alternative transportation.
