GreenThumb Events & Workshops

Share your Story with the Smithsonian

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

5:30 p.m.7:30 p.m.

Bring your garden's story, and we'll help you shape, edit, refine, and submit to the Smithsonian's ongoing Community of Gardens project. You can submit up to 2,000 words about your garden, as well as photos and audio. "By contributing images, videos, and stories to this website, your participation will help others to better understand the meaning and value of gardens to American life – today and in the future. Community of Gardens is the Smithsonian’s digital home for sharing and preserving the stories of gardens and the gardeners who make them grow."

For more information, check out, or join us at this workshop!

Joining us to help you refine your stories will be Cindy Nibbelink Worley and Haja Worley, GreenThumb community gardeners at Joseph Daniel Wilson Memorial Garden, Board Members of NYCCGC, author and WHCR Radio Host respectively; Sarita Daftary, Food Dignity Project; and GreenThumb
