The park stretches for 205 acres, and is an epicenter of activity offering soccer and baseball field, basketball courts, a running track, and an amphitheater, not to mention the beautiful walking/biking trail that stretches throughout the space.

Green Worker Co-ops and Green Feen Organix invite volunteers and people of all ages for a day of environmentally-focused activities at Synergi Urban Garden 2.0.

Twenty years ago, having access to clean and natural spaces for Bronxites was difficult or non-existent. On Earth Day, we will honor the efforts of groups, residents, churches, schools, and YOU, that have brought the Bronx new life and a greener future.

Bring yourself, a friend, or loved one to join us in celebrating the work of co-ops and organizations in the Bronx!

The event will kick off with a day of recreation and service. There will be activities for all ages:

  • a nature scavenger hunt
  • hip-hop and composting
  • eco-friendly demos led by our cooperatives (DIY natural cleaning products, handmade jewelry from recycled materials, etc.)
  • co-operative olympics (team-building activities)
  • and much more to be announced!

Do your part to ensure NYC Gardens stay beautiful and litter-free by volunteering for our clean-up.
Volunteers will work on park clean-up to improve the garden, and participate and assist in the activities for the day. (Students that need to fulfill a service requirement are welcome!). Volunteer assignments will be explained during the 11:30 a.m. orientation. Please arrive early so as to ensure a timely start. Light refreshments will be served. Volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes, as well as dress comfortably in clothes that can get dirty.

Volunteer Expectations:

  1. Commitment to serve a shift of two hours (choose a time between Noon and 4:00 p.m., orientation at 11:30 a.m.).
  2. Commitment to work in the assigned function, with willingness to cooperate with all GWC and Green Feen staff and Synergi Urban Garden partner staff and volunteers.
  3. Commitment to perform assigned responsibilities as required.
  4. Willingness to work outdoors in shine or rain, and ability to handle gardening tools.

To become a volunteer, sign up online at bit.ly/BXEarthDayVolunteer. Together we'll celebrate the day's accomplishments and enjoy some refreshments.
