Join us September 15th!
If you want to meet people from all over the country, and the world, you could do it by chatting up Crest customers any day of the week. In just one day at the garden center, I spoke to neighborhood residents that originally hailed from California, New Zealand, Hawaii, France, Tennessee…and those are just the people I asked!
Naturally, we get asked what can be grown in Brooklyn by folks who are new to the area.
Lychee fruit: Won’t grow in Brooklyn.
A smart person once told me that if you want to know what grows well in your area, look at what your neighbor is growing. Better yet, ask them! Going to your local garden center is a wonderful way to get expert advice and get acquainted with local gardening, and we’re happy to do it. Speaking as someone who remembers being a newbie to gardening, seeing the way people used plants in their own space took my understanding to a new level.
A garden can be a labor of love, an ongoing experiment, a place to entertain, show your kids cool looking bugs, and become intimate with beauty and the workings of nature. Most gardeners enjoy talking about their endeavors. You’ll find that people who grow things love spreading the joy (and the occasional heartbreak) of it.
It is with this spirit of sharing our endeavors that the households on the Williamsburg Garden Walk are opening their gardens to you. We hope you’ll join us and tell your friends, especially if they are new to the neighborhood or to gardening.
