I cannot begin to explain how much praise that GCF team has been getting from New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) staff, NYCHA resident gardeners, and all stakeholders involved at NYCHA’s 11th Annual Garden Conference on Friday, March 15, 2013.
During the Conference’s opening remarks, NYCHA Board Member and Environmental Coordinator Margarita López invited Green City Force Corps Members and staff to join her on the stage. It was quite an impromptu moment and an inspirational one at that. Commissioner López acknowledged that Green City Force was the force that is needed to sustain NYCHA, while strongly emphasizing that the wisdom of age alongside the energy of young can achieve NYCHA’s green mission and greater things.
I am sure you will be hearing words of appreciation and gratitude from us for months to come in regards to the event on Friday. The Green City Force Team, including Corps Members and staff alike, are amazing. Thank you all so much for all the work you have contributed to NYCHA’s gardens and green spaces.
