Mural Launch Event June 1st

The day was hot, but the enthusiasm was high during the barbecue debut of the Moore Street Farm mural project during Bushwick Open Studios weekend! Add some tables, chairs and umbrellas, some hot dogs and lemonade and what could be more emblematic of a summer weekend?! Plus, many of the neighborhood residents ventured in to learn more about the farm -- a great start to making it a community gathering place.

A million thanks to Arts in Bushwick for their great collaboration on this project and for bringing in Home Depot, which generously donated AND planted flowers and plants. Libby from Home Depot was there to share the celebration and she tells us she'll be back to plant a fruit tree with the kids.

And thanks too to the owners of Crown Fried Chicken at 106 Moore Street, who have been so nice to the farmers and volunteers, with food and cool drinks.

Nursery Beds

The pool is all ready for floating plant beds -- it sure looked inviting on a hot Saturday!

All in all, a great weekend. Thanks to Lauren Smith from Arts in Bushwick and all the AIB volunteers who helped out on Saturday.
