Yvonne Shortt Discusses Edible Queens Green Walls & Community Involvement at Bamboomoves

RPGA Volunteers,

The Green Wall Pilot program was a great success. It demonstrated the power of sustainability, art, community involvement, and education. With the help of community volunteers, public and private schools, involved parents, and a community oriented yoga studio we created a wall that grows chives, oregano, and a variety of mint.

Bamboomoves, a local yoga studio hosting our first green wall, has invited me to speak at their celebration tonight Saturday, January 9th. If you are available please stop by. There will be a raffle, dancers, and a sword performance.

They are located in Forest Hills near the E/F train on Queens BLVD
107-40 Queens BLVD suite 206

On another note, RPGA received a grant to extend our green wall project and helped secure a grant for P.S. 139 to continue the transformation of their schoolyard..
