Meeting to Plan New Community Gardening Project in Forest Hills

Thursday, June 16th

6:30 – 8:30 PM

Come discuss next steps and meet your neighbors

Central Queens YM&YWHA

67-09 108 Street

Forest Hills, NY 11375

At the very successful Community Earth Day Fair, it was clear that Forest Hills residents have a great interest in sustainable and healthy food.  Sustainable Forest Hills wants to collaborate with other groups to develop one or more highly visible projects in Forest Hills.  We're not promising a particular outcome, but we look forward to next steps. We seek collaborators for ongoing community awareness raising events around gardening and sustainability.

- Propose a site for a community garden, rooftop farm, or compost collection.

- Should we try to set up a farmer's market?

- Have space for a garden but little time or knowledge for gardening?  Or are you a willing gardener with no yard? We could try the garden share system that's started in Brooklyn, matching neighbors.  http://bkfarmyards.com/

- Set up onsite school gardens through NYC’s www.growtolearn.org/?

- Other suggestions?
