My name is Joan and I'm a volunteer with SPNA at Stuyvesant Park. I've been volunteering for a couple of years and really enjoy it
Its a good feeling to do something that benefits the neighborhood you live in. Its rewarding to see the results of your labor in terms of blooming flowers, green grass, etc.. It is also a great opportunity to meet and get to know your neighbors.
This two summers ago we were without a gardener. The neighbors maintained the garden by working 40-50 hours each week. It was a good lesson- the neighbors alone can't make the garden thrive. Neither could one gardener do the work without our help. Together we can get much done. Today, we are working with Maria Mendez (our new gardener) She is a fabulous worker and an addition to our community.
We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00AM-12:00 Noon. Won't you think about joining
Friends Seminary Thank you Friends Seminary's 4th grade class for coming out to help Josie paint flower bed fencing. SPNA bought high quality paint that should make your efforts last a long time. This video is inspiring. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
Andy's Grade 4 class painted part of the fence in Stuyvesant Square Park today as part of #FSServiceDay2017.
J.g. CollinsNow is the time to organize to stop whatever bullying, machination our thoroughly corrupt Mayor deBlasio has in mind, whether it be a homeless shelter or another 900 foot tall super scraper on a tiny lot.
DO NOT TRUST THIS MAYOR!!!

We declare our first Earth Day Celebration a success. As usual, the weather worked in our favor. Volunteers planted lily of the valley in tree bases and spread seeds for annual flowers. Kids made and decorated bird feeders. We even got a little nature walk at the end.
Thanks to all our volunteers. Thanks to the helpful vendors: Van Hooten Farms, Piccolo Cafe and Warshaw Hardware. ... See MoreSee Less
