Join us for a day of service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this MLK Jr. Day,

Monday January 16th, 2023!

In the spirit of Dr. King’s legacy of service, join us to complete the first phase of our Eco-Hub build at Astoria Houses! 

We have begun to build our sixth and inaugural Queens Eco-Hub at Astoria Houses, giving us a presence in all of NYC’s boroughs as we reach towards our vision of serving all of NYCHA’s 500,000+ residents, expanding equitable space, opportunity and health to additional NYCHA communities.

On Monday, January 16th from 9am – 4pm, we will be at our new Astoria Houses site spreading soil, compost, and woodchips in our farm beds to finish filling them and preparing them for spring planting, as well as assembling picnic tables.

Come lend a hand and help us honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of making justice a reality for everyone!
