In the News: Greenest Block Contest
One of the greatest results of competing as a team is the sense of community that develops. BBG’s community environmental horticulture program, GreenBridge, has been working toward that for 17 years with its Greenest Block in Brooklyn competition.
Here are some of our favorite stories chronicling this year’s contest and contestants:
- Listen to GreenBridge director Robin Simmen’s remarks on the collective action taken by the winning residential block, East 25th Street between Clarendon Road and Avenue D, from NY1.
- Check out the Daily News’s take on the vacant building that was adopted by East 25th Street residents.
- Watch a slideshow and follow along as Lindsey Taylor of Garden Design magazine describes her experience as a judge in the contest.
