GrowTogether with us for Earth Week at Part 2 of the 38th Annual GreenThumb GrowTogether Conference! Living microorganisms are working constantly to keep our world balanced. In soil, they harmonize to sustain a living system that passes life along to the ecosystem rooted in it. Effective microorganisms (EM1) are a group of three microbes that promote higher beneficial microbe populations in soil. Although these occur organically in nature, many of our soils have been depleted of their microbial life. The good news is, we can make EM1 in our own homes! The applications are endless: drain cleaner, declogger, fertilizer, compost accelerator, Bokashi starter, natural herbicide, fungicide,and insecticide, surface sanitizer, odor neutralizer, you name it. In this workshop, participants will learn how to recycle their food waste into Bokashi compost, how to promote healthy microorganisms in soil, and how to take advantage of the many additional benefits EM1 has to offer.

Register on Eventbrite.

Facilitated by Sacesha Bennett and Emely Chahin, Paradise Community Garden. Sacesha seeks to help others understand simplistic ways to help the environment. With an open mind and circular goal, Sacesha has practiced various types of composting and has passionately searched for innovations that limit waste and greenhouse gases. Emely is part of the GreenThumb Youth Leadership Council.

Rain date: Sunday, April 24, same time

Midori & Friends presents a Mother’s Day celebration for the whole family featuring Alsarah & the Nubatones and the Villalobos Brothers.

Alsarah is a Sudanese-born singer, songwriter, and ethnomusicologist, and together with the Nubatones she enchants audiences with East African retro-pop, proving that soul transcends cultural and linguistic barriers. The Villalobos Brothers are one of today’s leading Contemporary Mexican ensembles. Their original compositions and arrangements masterfully fuse and celebrate the richness of Mexican folk music with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music.

The Alliance for FMCP's 2022 sponsored artists in the park are Sherwin Banfield and Haksul Lee. Come meet them and take a walk to the sites of their sculptures to hear about how each artist's commitment to sustainability and the issues of climate change influenced their work.

No registration required. Weather permitting.

Sherwin Banfield's Going Back to The Meadows is a sculptural sonic performance artwork dedicated to Queens hip-hop legend LL Cool J, his hometown of Queens, NY, and historical performances at Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Haksul Lee's The Giving Tree brings awareness to the environmental concerns in the Queens community and elevates Flushing Meadows Corona Park as one that leads the future.

These exhibitions are made possible by the Art in the Parks: Alliance for Flushing Meadows Corona Park Grant, which supports the creation of site-specific public artworks by Queens-based artists for two sites within Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
