Corlears Hook Park saw a ton of volunteers this weekend digging, weeding, planting and having fun.
Cooperator Michael Marino of Friends of Corlears Hook Park says he has a lot of people to thank:
In particular, Michael gave a shout-out to cooperator and retired horticulturist Ted Pender for “spearheading this process, plotting out the areas, selecting the plantings and overseeing the work.”
Citizens Committee for NYC, Partnership For Parks and The Lo-Down for their sponsorship of the event, along with the numerous individual donors that chipped in to help us pay for the plants and supplies.
To the two dozen or so volunteers who came out to help dig holes, plant, weed, mulch, cultivate, rake and water. This work would not be possible without your help.
Here’s video that Michael says “explains why so many backs are hurting today!”
And here’s a full set of photos from Facebook.
