The Mission Continues is joining Concrete Safaris to keep their gardens alive in East Harlem! Concrete Safaris is a model for social change in which children learn how to alter the physical world around them by navigating New York City's infrastructure, becoming confident, experienced, effective leaders at an early age, committed to their health and environment.

We will be working with the community doing a variety of maintenance activities that consist of repairing raised beds, shoveling topsoil, planting herbs, vegetables, fruits, and flowers, spreading mulch, picking up trash, weeding, and more!

The Meet location is at 300 East 115th Street just east of Second Avenue outside of the Jefferson Houses Management Office. If you arrive after the start time for this event and do not see anyone, meet us in the gardens around the basketball courts just south of this office between First and Second Avenues and 115th and 113th Streets. These gardens cannot be seen from the meeting point.
