Slow Food NYC is sponsoring a work day at Ujima this Saturday, September 25th from 10am – 4pm. If you want to help us put the gardens to bed, paint a mural, re-upholster chairs or fix up the classroom, come on by.
At 4pm, we will share a potluck supper, so bring something to share.
Yesterday we hosted our first annual “Slow Food NYC Dig In” at Ujima Garden. There were close to 3o volunteers who showed up for a day of hard work. We got tons of work done and then celebrated our efforts with a delicious pot-luck lunch. We built a new 3 bin composter, prepared the beds for fall planting, started a new mural, installed new shelving in the classroom and much more.
I would like to send a big shout out of thanks to all the Slow Food members who volunteered their time and effort to make our Dig-In such a fantastic success.
