Every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. until noon from now until Dec. 14, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade gardener Jonathan Landsman needs your help.
“Primarily we are digging and planting beds with the thousands of tulips that make our famous spring display,” he says according to the press release. The activity “is very physical and participants should come dressed in tough layers with sturdy shoes.” Landsman also reminds participants to come dressed for the colder weather.
Maybe what Landsman didn’t plan on was bad timing. There are many Brooklyn Heights residents who would love to be a part of this project, but find the time of day or the day of the week to be prohibitive.
While I’m sure the gardens will turn out fine this year as they do every year, Landsman may wish to spread the volunteer opportunities into at least one day a week on the weekends next time so that more people can lend a hand.
Still, if you’ve got the time or the inclination, the event happens at the Promenade flagpole on Montague Street.
