Join GreenThumb and LUNGS as they parade and party to welcome spring and celebrate the opening of our community gardens!

This year's Spring Awakening promises to be spectacular. LUNGS has partnered with DOT's Weekend Walks Program which permits us to close down Avenue C from 6th Street to 10th Street for the day. What are we going to do with all that space? Plenty!

Costume and banner making workshop. Come by and paint yourself blue! Green Oasis 368 E. 8th St. between Avenue C and Avenue D from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Parade beginning at 11:45 p.m. at El Sol Brillante Garden on E. 12th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B. The parade will snake through the neighborhood and end up on Avenue C.

Music: Two fantastic local groups: Fiddler and the Crossroads and Ray Santiago are performing and more to come.

Make it Green Baby! A Pop Up Garden in the middle of the Avenue makes for green streets and will feature the Wellness Circle, with yoga, herbal healing and more.

Workshops on Green mapping, hydrology, be keeping, composting and much more.

For Kids: we've got pony rides, egg dying, flower pot painting, making toys from twigs, and hula hoops and more.
