Spring Has Sprung at Kingsland Wildflowers Rooftop Garden


It’s official. Spring has sprung, and that was evident this weekend at Kingsland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages, the interactive and educational green rooftop garden, designed by Alive Structures and managed by NY City Audubon and Newtown Creek Alliance.

The weekend began with Field Day Friday, which included tours of the green roof and an opportunity to participate in discussions and workshops focused on conservation, stewardship, and ecology. Later that evening a screening of the documentary film by Sidney Beaumont, From Paris to Pittsburg, was shown. The film explores the national and worldwide effects of climate change and was narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Rachel Brosnahan.

Open House Saturday followed, with tours of the native plant garden and our community engagement space. It was a great way to spend a weekend in nature right in our own backyard. Just in case you missed it, take a look at the photo gallery and then check out the events calendar. We welcome you to visit Kingsland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages.
