About the Brooklyn Queens Land Trust and their work in the community.
Bike riding, exploring the beautiful gardens of Brooklyn, eating delicious foods, talking urban agriculture, sustainability, healthy living, visiting with bees & chicens, and enjoying the splendor of Nature. This year we will visit gardens within the diverse neighborhoods of Fort Greene, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Prospect Heights & Bushwick. We get to witness and affirm the many connections between us that stretch across race, gender, class and culture.
