And yes, you can help beautify your community too (this weekend)!
Green and Blue Eco Care Hey everyone! How have you been?? I hope this email finds you well. Are you following us on Instagram and Facebook yet? Have you seen all the incredible events we already had this year? Feeling so grateful and humbled here. It’s amazing what we can do together! Check pictures of our events on our social media! We already collected hundreds of pounds of litter from our streets in East Harlem, bringing awareness about this major problem in our community and planet! This year we have also been planting sunflower seeds and other wildflowers on the street tree beds, for the benefit of our urban ecosystem and to beautify and uplift our community. Who can be sad or mad staring at a sunflower? The weather has been unpredictable and birds are having to adapt fast, but we hope our flowers can sustain pollinators’ lives and feed the birds too. Here’s where we planted so far:
We are very excited to team up with Friends of the East River Esplanade (60th-120th st) to create pollinators gardens on our riverfront near 96th St. Join us this Saturday and don’t miss the fun. Feel free to invite your contacts. Volunteers must be 18+ for this specific event. Please RSVP.

And this Sunday, Growing Green is hosting their first event in Harlem and we’ll be there to support them! Let’s see what many artists and dedicated volunteers can create together? Let me know if you are joining the fun. 11am in front of the Apollo Theatre.
