We wanted to repost about Leaf Fest: Astoria Park this weekend, which as gone beyond simply raking leaves and collecting them to compost, and has turned into a bigger cleanup of Astoria Park as a whole. The Astoria Park Alliance posted this update:
Leaf Fest/ Operation Clean Up is officially on in Astoria Park! Please join us this Saturday, Nov. 3rd, from 10am to noon. We will have a table set up in front of the Tennis Courts, near the “Field House”. Let’s get a huge turnout and cleanup! Please Note: NYC PARKS WILL NOT RE-OPEN UNTILL SATURDAY, 8AM. Please let the crews get in there and do their job! Join us at 10am.
