At the unlikely location of 121 Clarkson near Bedford comes a Free Fall Planting Workshop with landscape architect Sasha Newman-Ladjen. Prepare your garden for winter AND get 15% off from the ever-reliable Kings County Nursery over on New York Avenue. If you haven't been to KCN you owe yourself a trip. We go three four times a year. Our family bought an Xmas tree from there last year and got it delivered - the owner Joe waived the fee and said merry christmas. (That's not to suggest he shows favoritism to folks who were raised as christians. He's been known to offer discounts to Jews, Muslims, Zoroastrianists, Confucianists, Baha'is, Buddhists and Shintoists. Not so much with the Crystalists, but he's open.) Family owned and operated since 1955. Not the most adventurous garden shop in the City, but damn close-by for those of us without autos.
Oops! This post is about the planting workshop. Here's the flyer:
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
