You're Invited: Children's Container Gardening Project Saturday May 4th

Join us on Saturday, May 4th 2-4 pm at the Community Garden (located on the northwest corner of Harlem Ave and the I-290 interchange) for a children's container garden activity. Parents and kids, bring your own food safe plastic recycled container such as milk jugs and larger plastic beverage bottles, and we'll  make Mom or Grandma a special Mother’s Day edible garden gift.   FPCG will also provide a selection of recycled containers for kids to choose from if they can't bring something from home. We'll provide soil, plants, and seeds and some decorating supplies. 

Cost: Free! RSVP preferred to guarantee enough containers and seedlings!
