If I had to rate my garden this season it would be a solid 10 out of 10. What can I say, I have a green thumb…. Or more likely the case, my neighbors helped guide me on what to plant, how to plant it, watering when I failed and generally making sure I had a great season.
And I think that’s the point. My little garden in central Harlem is a real community affair. Neighbors talk with each other. They ask how each other’s days were. Wait, wait. Talking? Asking? Genuine interest in your neighbor? In New York? No Way!
The Harlem Arts Festival is back at Marcus Garvey Park this weekend (June 25th-26th!) We covered the festivities last year and it really is a wonderful community event.
