Project 2. New York City Parks 

  The problem with these gardens and parks are they are run by adults who lacked the resources to maintain these gardens. East Brooklyn needs our youth to get involve. The drug epidemic in the 90's has left a communication gap between the adults and youths in our area. We want to close this gap through horticultural therapy and jobs that we can recycle many of our youths to become better citizens. The tools we ask for will assist our gardeners and be out for loan to qualify community groups who need assistant to beautify the area.

We will continue to work with GrowNYC, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Partnerships for Parks, New Yorkers for Parks and others to make our parks better.
