April 29, 2017: Garden to Garden
First walk of our 4th season!
Our fourth season kicked off with a scenic tour of the neighborhood from our home base at
Poor Richard’s Playground to the French Garden section of the Central Park Conservatory to Chenchita’s Garden, our favorite community garden in East Harlem.
We were joined by Cinthia de la Rosa from the East Harlem Neighborhood Health Action Center and a photographer to document our activities for the Neighborhood Activation Grant.
Highlights included the spring blooms across the neighborhood, Canada geese by the Harlem Meer, finding a baby red-eared slider and escorting it back to the water, and our big cook-out at Chenchita’s.
We reviewed the calendar for the year—lots of favorite walks plus new content and new opportunities to make East Harlem healther.
Another great walk!
