Journey to our nearest star! The search for inhabitable planets outside of our solar system gets more exciting each year as we find new prospects. Recently, scientists found a prospect around our nearest star. The close proximity is cause for great excitement. Could we send a probe there? How long would the journey take? And what would the probe find upon its arrival? Come find out in this talk by a former intern at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab at CALTECH, Jaclyn Avidon. The talk is followed by skygazing (weather permitting). Feel free to bring your own telescope or binoculars and set them up next to the experts!

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

The Department of Sanitation Artist-in-Residence, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, will discuss her pioneering 30+ year residency with the city agency and the evolving landfill-to-landscape at Freshkills with Mariel Villere (Freshkills Park Manager for Programs, Arts and Grants).

Ukeles’ projects have ranged from socially-engaged and performance-based works with sanitation workers, to choreographed machine performances, to monumental environmental art at this landscape, all made possible by time and behind-the-scenes access. Today, while the site is being built incrementally over time, Mariel Villere organizes monthly photography tours in a series called “Capturing Change,” which has become a durational record of the site’s transformation, likewise emphasizing the importance of time for artists making work at and about the landscape as it evolves.

This talk will take place at Staten Island Arts’ Culture Lounge Gallery alongside the "Freshkills Park: Landscape in Motion" exhibit, on display from September 22 through November 26, 2016.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

The Hattie Carthan Community Farmers’ Market is opening for its eighth season of healthy food, activities, education, and food justice programming.

This year, the market will continue to grow its youth program in order to employ, educate, and empower local teenagers through the Hattie Carthan Urban Agriculture Youth Corps. We have also worked feverishly to improve the environment and delivery of services to market shoppers through strategic improvements in the physical infrastructure and by partnering with The Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation to increase our local visibility and foot traffic in the markets. That partnership will offer us additional market days at sister market sites in the immediate community, and to host several cultural festivals in the market and garden, author readings in the childrens garden, bike tours which complement our natural programming, and increase advertising and promotions of both markets.

The Large Market will continue its Healthy Gains through Baking with Whole Grains at the newly-improved cooking island area in September; offer eggs and herbs for sale from the Hattie Carthan chicken coops and new herbal farm, and will continue to offer individuals and institutions an opportunity to receive local vegetables, eggs, and herbs by subscribing to our alternative distribution programs—The Mixed Basket weekly Program and Institutional Basket Program.
