Community Gardeners Are Invited To Celebrate Summer Solstice in Hell's
Kitchen

On Saturday, June 16th hundreds of gardeners from the 650+ New York City 
community gardens will gather to celebrate the 5th Annual Summer Solstice 
Celebration at the Clinton Community Garden, located on West 48th Street 
between 9th and 10th Avenues in Manhattan.
 
The Summer Solstice Celebration will be held from 1-5:30 p.m. and will 
include on-going activities such as summer plant give-aways, garden tours, 
Parks SkateMobile, solstice magic and lots of fun activities for kids. Along

with 2001 NYC candidates, representatives from City of New York/Parks & 
Recreation, Parks 2001 Campaign, Trust for Public Land, New York Restoration

Project, Neighborhood Open Space Coalition, Council on the Environment of
New 
York City, and the New York City Community Garden Coalition will be on hand 
to help celebrate summer and honor the season's most popular plants.
 
Professionals ready to answer questions about summer herbs, roses, compost 
and garden design projects will staff plant information tables. Through the 
generous donation of Jackson & Perkins, hundreds of rose bushes will be
given 
away. Since 1872 Jackson & Perkins has been providing serious rosarians and 
budding gardeners with the world's most stunning, trouble-free and fragrant 
roses. Also GreenThumb will provide numerous varieties of summer herbs and 
perennials. Visit these plant giveaway tables and take home several new 
varieties to add to your community garden.
 
Fun kids activities will include water balloon races, watermelon seed target

shooting contest, solstice herb amulet/crown making, sidewalk murals, seed 
mosaics and More Gardens! puppet making. There will be plenty of food and 
fresh summertime produce made possible by GreenThumb, city gardeners and the

Council on the Environment of New York City's Greenmarket program.
 
Circle of Soul Performers, the Rincon Criollo Band and the Santos White Band

will be among the many performing artists to entertain throughout the day.
 
This event is co-sponsored by the Clinton Community Garden and GreenThumb. 
Established in 1978, The Clinton Community Garden was the first community 
garden to be transferred from GreenThumb jurisdiction to parkland in 1984.
