On Oct. 26 nearly 30 individuals came together to plant a vegetable garden in the courtyard of Twin Parks North West, located at 333 E. 181st St.
Building ownership Bronx Parks Phase Preservation LLC joined building residents led by Tenant Association President Phyllis Harris to plant new flower beds in the space for resident use. New York Botanical Garden, volunteers from Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Muslim Community Network and other community partners were also present for the event.
The flower beds will bloom in the summer producing garlic, strawberries and tulips that building residents will be free to harvest.
“We are always happy to bring our staff together with our residents,” said Rick Gropper, principal at Camber Property Group. “This planting event was a great opportunity for us to bond, plant fresh produce and make our community a little better for everyone.”
