Get green this weekend and help the trees!

Want to be a tree steward? Well, your time has come! This Saturday, October 18th between 10 am and 1 pm, join the 61 Franklin Street Community Garden and together you can make Greenpoint a little greener.

Ask any gardener and they will tell you Autumn is the perfect time to get into the garden and put things into the ground. As the cold air moves in, plants go dormant, and quietly over the winter these little plants work on growing strong roots so that come springtime we can sit back and admire their precious blooms.

In an effort to keep Greenpoint’s trees and root systems happy for years to come, the Franklin Street Community Garden is freshening up tree beds around the area by planting daffodils. Not only will Greenpoint’s trees thank you for it, but come springtime the streets will be bursting with bright yellow flowers. It almost enough to make you forget that winter is coming!

NY Times Featured Greenpoint Open Studios!

Tooting our own horn is in order Greenpoint! The one and only NY Times featured Greenpoint Open Studios in the Spare Times section today! I mean like almost an entire page dedicated to this weekend’s event! How many more exclamation points can I use?! See you tonight at the Kick-Off party at Dirck’s tonight folks! It’s going to be a stellar weekend! More info on GOS here.

Now for some personal horn tooting. In the printed version the Times used a photo that I took of Greenpoint Open Studios 2010 – of my friend Martin’s butt! I always knew that one day I would be published in the NY Times and it would be an ass photo. Notice it features my newly married name Jen G. Pywell. And they featured the original cute smiley face logo we had that year which was designed by Stephanie Wenzel.
