Garden and community space in Bed-Stuy

Meeting Notes from June 28

There's a bit of a rat/mouse infestation in the lot. And we need everyone to call 311 and report the rats, request boxes and talcolm powder and get a complaint number. Calling multiple times will help. We're working on a proposal for grants and to gain support from neighborhood entities. Regina is working on that.

The site plan is underway thanks to Kameela. We plan on hanging a sign on the fence to inspire us and other residents to keep going on this project!

596 Acres will be having their general meeting on July 7th from 4 to 6 at our lot. Please stop by and support 596 and Patchen Community Square. http://596acres.org/en/events/47/

On July 21, we'll be holding a wine tasting as a fundraising event at Regina's house. So mark your calendar and bring people! There will be cheese, brie, crackers, cupcakes to eat. Purchase a bottle to recieve a wine glass. Stefanie to bartend, Chrystal to great and everyone else to be waiters. There will also be a raffle with a basket of goodies.
