Celebrating Community Gardens & Honoring Community Land Stewards

Celebrating community strength, stewardship, and resilience

Thanks to 596 Acres and the amazing honorees at the gala yesterday evening: Isabahlia Ladies of Elegance Foundation (Brownsville), BK ROT (Bushwick), and the Bangladeshi American Community Development and Youth Service (Cityline).

The “glimmering evening in celebration of community strength, stewardship and resilience” was a resounding success and I am honored to join you in recognizing important work our community land stewards do on behalf of all New Yorkers.
