Doggedly Devoted will be at Greener Lenox - Tree Restoration, Stewardship & Community Clean-up Day! What: A Day of "Freebies, Trees & Planting, Treats, & Community Fun" When: October 19th: 10 am -2 pm (Rain date: October 26) Come out to support & congratulate "The League: DGM: “2013 Grant Recipients of MillionTreesNY” - on a successful “Greener Lenox 2013” season. "Lenox Avenue, a.k.a. Malcolm X, is a vibrant corridor, which is really the heart of the village of Harlem and the more we green and maintain it, the better. With the engagement of the Lenox Avenue's Business initiative spearheaded by MMPCIA, we believe that collaboration of the Harlem Haberdashery & The League:DGM, small businesses, stakeholders, civic leaders and volunteers will play a huge reinforcement for the tree beds and the medians to even look brighter and greener for all to enjoy." ~Laurent Delly | MMPCIA, Vice President Who: Harlem Haberdashery, "The League: DGM", Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association and Doggedly Devoted. Why: This is the final event for the 2013 “Greener Lenox” Season. As we prepare to fall into the winter season, we would like to prepare our trees and planter box for insulating and the brutal attack of the Northeast winters. Our focus on this event will be trash & pollution management, remulching and other tree-preparation areas. Tulips bulbs will also be planted for the Spring 2014 season. Megan Coryat of Doggedly Devoted & a staff member will be teaching kids & adults on how to interact with dogs they don't know, providing free poop bag dispensers. In addition, we’ll be celebrating the local Halloween season by decorating the Lenox Avenue corridor with Halloween themed decorations. Immediately following the tree preservation & clean-up event; all volunteers will be treated to a pizza party by The League:DGM. Where: Lenox Avenue between 116-125th Street (Harlem NYC)| Meeting at Harlem Haberdashery (245 Lenox Avenue - 122nd/123rd street). Bring your entire family…and pooch.. Let’s create a "Hallow-Greener Lenox" for Harlem & New York City! Click here to view photos of our previous “Greener Lenox."
