Coop City Rivers Run Community Garden
The gate to Co-op City's Rivers Run Community Garden will be closed for winter 2016, however, folks can still see the hard work and love put into the space. And although, there is still so much to learn and do, we can take a moment to inhale and be grateful for how far we've come.
Residents of Co-op City and its surrounding communities came together to convert the virgin space into a community garden that not only grows fruits, flowers, herbs and vegetables, but grows friendship and knowledge.
Rivers Run nurtures its supporters by providing additional meaning and purpose in their lives and opens folks to new experiences. In addition, Co-op City Rivers Run is an outdoor classroom for the local schools and day-cares.
Rivers Run Community Garden attracts folks with memories of "back home" and "in the day" and combines it with the "what ifs" and "how about we try" forward thinkers.
River Run's Leslie Peterson says "We look hopeful to the future with plans on having more than the year before. Stop by at a meeting if you are interested."
If you would like contribute knowledge, service and friendship or participate in the development of Co-op City's waterfront garden, applications are available at Rivers Run Community Garden monthly meeting held every 3rd Thursday of the month at the Dreiser Loop Community Center in room 9 at 7:00 PM.
