The Brotherhood/Sister Sol held its annual Planting Weeks, on Monday, April 29th to Friday, May 3rd and again on Monday, May 6th to Thursday, May 9th, 3:00pm to 6:00pm daily in The Frank White Memorial Garden, located at 506 West 143rd Street. We had a Garden BBQ on Friday, May 10th from 4-6pm.
During Planting Weeks we welcomed all to join us in the garden as we plant annuals, perennials, vegetables and herbs; and as we paint and repaired structures, preparing the garden for spring.
Youth Members of our Environmental Program co-facilitated Planting Week, and youth throughout the organization participated in the efforts.
The Brotherhood-Sister Sol Environmental Program is an environmental leadership project for youth ages 14-18. Members maintain the Frank White Memorial Garden adjacent to our brownstone, engage environmental justice projects with other organizations, and manage a local farmers market providing fresh local produce and healthy eating workshops to community residents.
