Summer Solstice is the longest and most light-filled day of the year, and one of our favorite days to celebrate at Socrates. Mark this midsummer phenomenon with art-making workshops and activities from The Noguchi Museum, Free Style Arts Association, and The Blue Bus Project, and join artist / storyteller Satya Celeste to transform the grove of trees into a communal art piece. On stage, we feature youth performances from 696 Build Queensbridge, and Secret Society Dance Company choreographed by Traequan Middleton representing Astoria Houses’ HANAC Cornerstone. Afterwards, catch Queens native and vocal artist/performer STEFA*’s powerful sonic layering and vocal improvisations, followed by an all women drum ensemble Batalá New York’s high-energy Afro-Brazilian rhythms. At sunset, gather around the hill for Urban Shaman Mama Donna’s annual waterfront Solstice ritual uniting all in reverence and positive energy.

The common snapping turtle is the largest freshwater turtle. Its serpentine neck, massive head, muscular legs, and relatively long tail make it seem even larger. It is estimated that they can live 30 to 40 years in the wild, perhaps even longer.

One of the most interesting things about the food of the African diaspora is how closely it connects the people who prepare it, often without them even realizing it. There are several characters that almost all cuisines of the African Diaspora share: seasoning technique; cooking techniques such as stewing and frying; the prevalence of starchy mashes or porridges eaten with stews and soups or on their own. Among African, Latin, and Caribbean cuisines, ingredients are nearly identical, most likely due to the similarity in climate. Tropical foods such as plantains, cassava, coconuts, and palm oil are staples in West African and Afro-Brazilian cooking. The distinctive ingredients of southern cuisine, as well as the style of cooking them, have been common for centuries in Africa.

We invite you to taste our rich heritage in the bountiful garden!

Partnerships Academy Workshops
Partnerships for Parks (PfP) invites you to join us at one of our many free and open to the public workshops offered year-round! They are a great way to meet, network, and learn the skills needed to get involved with, build, or sustain your park group.

Upcoming Workshop: How Are Parks Built? The NYC Parks Capital Process

Have you ever wondered how local parks are renovated and redesigned? How an outdated park can be transformed with fresh ideas and infrastructure?

Large scale improvements to parks, playgrounds, and greenways are happening all across New York City as part of the NYC Parks capital process; in fact, from sports field renovation to boardwalk resiliency, there are over 600 capital projects underway at this very moment.

Come to this workshop to learn:

  • The basics of how NYC Parks funds, designs, and constructs the parks we love and enjoy
  • What qualifies as a capital project, the steps for its completion--including needs assessment, procuring contractors, and construction--and how you can use the Capital Project Tracker to keep track of the timeline
  • And how communities can effectively gather data and ideas to participate in this process and provide input on park design

Featured speakers include:

  • Diane Jackier, Chief of Capital Strategic Initiatives, NYC Parks

Diane is the Chief of Capital Strategic Initiatives at NYC Parks. In this role, she oversees division-wide initiatives to improve the quality and efficiency of Parks’ capital process. She also supervises the staff in the quality assurance, data systems, and accessibility units in the Capital Division. Diane has a Master of City Planning, a Master of Science in Historic Preservation, and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania.

  • Krystyna Soljan, Community Visioning & Planning Manager, Partnerships for Parks

Krystyna Soljan is a community economic development professional and macro social worker dedicated to the holistic revitalization of disinvested urban neighborhoods. She currently serves as the Community Visioning & Planning Manager at Partnerships for Parks, where she helps community partners gather the data they need to support their advocacy campaigns for capital improvements in local parks. Previously, she coached and trained community groups in various settings, providing support to worker-owned cooperative businesses across NYC as well as neighborhood associations in Newark, NJ. Her favorite green spaces in NYC are the streets of Ditmas Park lined with London Planes.
