Our Season Opener - Urban Meadow Membership Meeting - March 27

Spring is here! Time to clean up the Meadow and get it ready for another year of picnics, playing, relaxing and fantastic events.

There are already a lot of amazing events planned this year: a series of jazz concerts, other performances, a plant sale and our very first event, our 3rd Annual Spring Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 24th. We'll also be starting a new composting program at the Meadow this spring.

What's that sound?

The Urban Meadow, like all of New York City, was covered in several feet of snow from December through February, but lately, there's been a strange and interesting sound coming from the trees... birds!  And crocuses pushing up through suddenly clear front yards.  Soon we'll be heading into the season of planting and we look forward to another year at the Meadow. Another sign of spring?  The Meadow's annual Spring Egg Hunt on April 24th - stay tuned for more details.
