Cleaning up the Sixth Street and Avenue B Community Garden

The garden here got whacked pretty good during Hurricane Irene... as noted earlier, the garden's willow tree didn't make it... Clean-up started last week...

EVG friend Elizabeth Frayer filed this report on the clean-up efforts:

Gardeners showed up with their tools and some even brought their children to help clean up. After several hours of work, the tree and other items that had been damaged from the storm were on their way to being cleaned up. The tree fell across many garden plots, however, and many were completely destroyed. It will take months, if not years, to restore this East Village oasis.
