On Saturday, September 14 from 12:00-1:30 pm, all of the community gardens in the Columbia Waterfront District will be part of a walking tour. The Urban Meadow is very excited to participate in a joint event with the other beautiful gardens in the neighborhood, each with its own unique history and features. The guided tour will begin at the Human Compass Garden on the corner of Columbia Street and Sackett Streets and will make a stop at each of these gardens along the way: the Amazing Garden, Summit Street Garden, Pirate's Cove Garden, the Backyard Garden, the Urban Meadow and then will end at the South Brooklyn Children's Garden. At each garden there will be current members to give a presentation about that garden, answer questions about what is going on in the garden and how to get involved. Come see what we're growing!
The tour is happening on the same day as the 5th Annual Columbia Waterfront Fall Festival, a fun annual event celebrating our vibrant neighborhood and featuring food, local arts and businesses selling their wares, and live music. The Festival will be on September 14 from 12 pm-6 pm along Columbia Street from DeGraw to Union Street and then along Union from Columbia to Hicks Street.
