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.

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.

Exercising with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestow health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors 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. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

Queens is the most diverse county in the United States. With nearly half of the 2.3 million residents born abroad, its neighborhoods are home to families that hail from over 120 countries and speak over 135 languages. On Saturday, August 8, 2020, visitors will learn more about the sacred sites that highlight Flushing’s religious diversity.

As the site of North America’s first proclamation of religious freedom — the Flushing Remonstrance of 1657, and the oldest extant house of worship in New York State — the Quaker Meeting House of 1694, Flushing is now the area of many new churches, temples, and mosques due to both a surge in the needs of contemporary immigrants and the availability of sizable plots of land in once-elite residential areas. We’ll discuss the ecological and economic problems engendered by the new churches as well as the uncertain status of historic religious institutions.

The first virtual stop on our tour will be the Quaker Meeting House (built in 1694). We’ll end the virtual tour with The Hindu Temple (Hindu Temple Society of North America), which is the first authentic Hindu temple in the country. The structure was designed in accordance with the Agama Sastras (ancient scriptures relating to temple building) and completed early in 1977.

We will also mention a number of remarkable new and older houses of worship including the Ebeneezer Baptist Church, St. George Episcopal Church, Chinese Buddhist Temple, Flushing Free Synagogue, St Michael Catholic Church, First Baptist Church, Kissena Jewish Center, Boon Church Of Overseas Chinese Mission, and many more.

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.

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 workouts, 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.

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.

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.

Office Hours with Cornell Cooperative Extension]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2020/08/11/whats-wrong-with-my-veggie-plant-office-hours-with-cornell-cooperative-extension http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2020/08/11/whats-wrong-with-my-veggie-plant-office-hours-with-cornell-cooperative-extension Date: August 11, 2020

What are these spots on my tomatoes? What is this bug, and is it eating or helping my crops? GreenThumb is thrilled to partner with Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) this summer to help you have a successful growing season. Submit your photos and questions in advance for the August 11 session by Friday, August 7, at noon. During the virtual office hours sessions, CCE Urban Agriculture Specialists Yolanda Gonzalez and Sam Anderson, together with GreenThumb staff, will work through your questions and do our best to provide answers, tips, and suggestions! We will have monthly office hour sessions on the second Tuesday of each month this summer. RSVP to attend office hours here.

The best way for us to help identify the issue is through photos. Please upload up to 5 clear, sharp images, with a mix of angles. For problems with plant damage or disease, include close-up shots of problem areas on the plants (damage, discoloration etc.) and at least one zoomed out to show the whole plant, if possible. If you see a bug, any fairly close-up and in-focus photos of the bug itself will be useful, along with photos of suspected damage to the plant.

**This series is for NYC-based members of GreenThumb community gardeners only. If you are an NYC backyard gardener, school gardener, or hobbyist, Cornell Cooperative Extension has existing programs in place for you! Please visit gardening.cals.cornell.edu/ for more information. If you are not from NYC, please check your state's USDA agricultural extension agent or land-grant university. Due to our limited capacity, we are limiting these sessions to members of GreenThumb community gardens in NYC. Thank you for understanding.
