Join in the festivities of New York City’s Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade. First, participants will do some gardening, helping out the folks at Roberto Clemente Community Garden, which has vegetables, fruit trees, and beauty, permanently protected by The Bronx Land Trust. Next, we will see folks build a float for the parade, right in their own community at El Flamboyan Community Garden in the South Bronx. Finally, participants will hear the drum sounds coming from the Casita, live at Rincon Criollo Cultural Center and Community Garden with Jose Chema Soto. Lunch is included. Tour Guide: Bobby Gonzalez, Bronx Storyteller.
Tickets are $30 (children 12 and under ride free) cash or check payable to Green Thumb Community Fund. Proceeds go directly to support The Bronx community gardens you visit. firstname.lastname@example.org
