Making Brooklyn green!

From Borough President Eric Adams:

As summer edges closer, it's time for our green thumbs to "dig" into the 23rd Annual Greenest Block in Brooklyn Contest! This competition is presented by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in partnership with Brooklyn Borough Hall and the Brooklyn Community Foundation,   promoting neighborliness and sustainability.

Various prizes will be awarded to the winners for both residential and commercial blocks for categories including: greenest storefront, best window box, sustainable practices, and other greening efforts. I hope you take this opportunity to enter your block; the deadline is Thursday, June 1st.

This is a friendly showdown that strengthens our local environment, builds lasting community bonds, and improves a quality of life that every Brooklynite gets to enjoy. Get involved!

P.S. Save the dates for these upcoming events, which I am proud to support, at and around Brooklyn Borough Hall; please contact our office for additional information
