NYC Wildflower Week
The 3rd annual NYC Wildflower Week will take place May 1-9, 2010. NYC Wildflower Week engages and connects people with the parks and natural areas in all 5 boroughs through free cultural programming. Our events inspire and empower New Yorkers to cultivate a landscape that is sustainable, beautiful and ecologically sound.
Every year, many events are featured in the garden, including guided tours. See the schedule here.

What’s in Bloom: April 1-15
Union Square Greenmarket
The Union Square Greenmarket – seen here beyond the garden to the left – is a wonderful place to get fresh food from local farms. It happens Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Saturdays year round. And now a few people are selling the native plant species found in the garden. So you can come see the plants and then bring some home from the market.
