Gardens Rising’s next roundtable took place on Wednesday, April 13 from 6:30 til 8:30 pm. We met at the Neighborhood Preservation Center, located on 232 E.11th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues.
The roundtables feature experts, stakeholders and public in a brainstorming session to build nature-based and green infrastructure to increase permeability in the Lower East Side of New York City.
The week’s round-table features:
Gigi Li, Chairperson of Community Board 3
Andrew Lombardi, Manhattan Borough President’s Office
Carlina Rivera, NYC City Councilperson Rosie Mendez’s Office
Lee Trotman, NYCHA (New York City Housing Authority)
Lilah Mejia, GOLES (Good Old Lower East Side)
Shino Tanikawa, NYC SWIM (Stormwater Infrastructure Matters)
Tato Brijo, Loisaida Center
Due to technical difficulties, audio was not recorded for this roundtable. Please hear our previous Roundtables here.
Gardens Rising is inspired in Super Storm Sandy, a project funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development through the NY Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery to control flooding in vulnerable city areas with nature-based infrastructure in our NYCCGC community gardens.
All interested parties are invited to participate.
