For years, students and teachers at PS 84, an elementary school on West 92nd Street in Manhattan, were frustrated by people and their dogs trampling flowers and other plants in front of their school.
Until NYRP showed up.
“The school reached out to NYRP to see if we could help build five tree guards to protect their gardening work and efforts,” said NYRP Director of Garden Horticulture Jason Sheets. “And this month, we did,” he said.
Every year, NYRP’s Gardens for the City program partners with schools, New York City Housing Authority campuses, senior citizen centers, community centers, and local gardens to transform public areas into beautifully landscaped open space.
