Invasive plants removal part II: September 17th 2011

Volunteers for Isham Park work day this week!
In April of this year, the VIP's removed Porcelain Berry vine and other invasive species from the north end of Isham Park.  The battle has not been won by a long shot!

Come and join us this Saturday, September 17th, from 9:30am to 12:30pm, at the fenced garden at the northeast corner of Isham Street and and Seaman Avenue.  

We will assist the NYC Parks Gardener in Isham Park in the quest to remove invasive species from that corner garden.  If time allows, we will also work to remove weeds and garbage from the Inwood Marble outcrop in the same area.  

The Saturday Farmer's Market will be in full swing so it should be a festive occasion...please come out to assist us in this endless quest!
Wednesday, September 28th 2011 is the 99th anniversary of the Gift of Isham Park to New York City!  This next year there will be many work days in advance of the Centennial of the Celebration of Julia Isham Taylor's gift to New York City of the land that became Isham Park. Work will be on-going.  Please contact Volunteers for Isham Park at if you would like to participate.
