Bank of Tokyo at Roberto Clemente Garden

Friday August 12th was a busy day at the Roberto Clemente Community Garden. With the assistance of 25 volunteers from the Bank of Tokyo we built two picnic tables and four benches.  We also waterproofed the gazebo and planted lots of perennials and annuals in the flower bed along the front of the garden.  Thanks so much to all of our volunteers and gardeners, the garden looks amazing!

Bed Building at Roberto Clemente Community Garden

We had a great workday today with Sustainable South Bronx and Bronx Green-Up at Roberto Clemente Community Garden in Highbridge in the Bronx.  We did some general clean up, finished a stone path, transplanted some plants, and built new raised beds for the garden.  Several gardeners stopped by to help with the work and the rain held off until after we left.  Thanks for everyone’s hard work, the garden is beginning to look great!
