On Thursday, February 25, Partnerships for Parks hosted a workshop as part of their Partnerships Academy series, ’How To Start Or Join A Community Park Group’, in the Longwood Art Gallery of Hostos Community College. Those in attendance learned how to become stewards for their local parks and green spaces, ways to join an existing local park group, or start a new local park group of their own.
