Hey Folks,
On August 18, 2017 we tabled at an event for Green Thumb in Harlem at 122nd and Mt. Morris Park West. At this event, I met Jose, a life long neighborhood resident, who is interested in organizing this lot for a green community space. We are meeting in front of the lot on Thursday August 31st at 12pm to discuss details for moving forward with getting access to this lot! If you are around and available come through and join us!

Saludos a todxs!
Les quiero compartir que en el 18 de agosto del 2017 participamos en un evento de Green Thumb en Harlem por la 122nd St. y Mt. Morris Park West. En ese evento conocí a Jose, un residente de este bloque, y me dijo que esta interesado en organizar este lote para hacer un espacio para la comunidad. Nosotros nos vamos a juntar este jueves 31 de agosto a las 12pm para conversar sobre un plan de acción para transformar el lote en un espacio para la comunidad. Si están disponibles, únanse a nosotrxs y nos vemos allí!

En Solidaridad,
