We planted some new perennials in the playground garden, planted three new street trees along 2nd Avenue between 11th Street and 12th Street, pruned and maintained existing trees in the playground, mapped the area with kites, and removed trash and debris.
The Gowanus Alliance provided barbeque to our volunteers following the stewardship activities.
The Gowanus Alliance also arranged for an exciting performance by Raízes do Brasil Capoeira Brooklyn, a local Capoeira studio located on 8th Street between 3rd Avenue and 2nd Avenue.
We wrapped up the day with a plant propagation workshop led by Hans Hesselein and Andrea Parker.
A special thank you to the Brooklyn Tech High School’s Red Cross Club and to all the neighborhood residents who came out to clean up Ennis Playground!
