Bulb Planting on West Street with BGI

November 5 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join BGI for our fall bulb planting on the West Street tree pits!

As the latest installment in BGI’s effort to beautify the new Greenway on West Street, we will be planting bulbs in the new tree pits where new trees were installed earlier this year.

Come join BGI and our partner New York Tree Trust and Greenpoint Tree Corps to celebrate the transformation of the streetscape and to help “green” Greenpoint!

We’ll be meeting at West Street and Greenpoint Ave at 10am. We will provide gloves and tools; you should bring a hat, sunscreen, and layers (as it’s fall and the weather could go any which way). Remember to wear comfortable clothes. See you then!

This volunteer event is part of our project to plant more than forty street trees along the West Street segment Greenway and connecting side streets. BGI worked with the NYC Parks Department to incorporate street tree requests from locals into this project in order to meet specific demands for greening from the Greenpoint community. All of the trees were planted last Spring, and we will be hosting community tree stewardship and engagement events for the coming two years. The effort was made possible with generous support from City Parks Foundation and its Newtown Creek Environmental Benefits Fund.
