Event Overview

The Queens Platoon is kicking off it’s first service project with the Brooklyn Queens Land Trust. The BQLT owns 35 community gardens and the lease-holder of one additional garden in Brooklyn and Queens. BQLT-owned gardens cannot be sold or developed and are permanently saved as open spaces. Located in 20 different neighborhoods through Brooklyn and Queens, BQLT gardens provide opportunities for diverse groups of people to meet and work together cooperatively. We’re deploying to Malcolm X Garden to create vertical gardens from reclaimed pallets and perform various farm tasks. It’ll be a fun filled day in Queens and we hope to see you there to make the launch of the Queens Platoon’s first event successful.
