Roosevelt Island Living Library & Think Park Gardens Plant Sale – May 15

We’re excited to invite you to join us on May 15, 11 am – 4 pm for the First Annual Roosevelt Island Living Library & Think Park’s Plant Sale Fundraiser to be held in the beautiful, RI Living Library & Think Park Gardens. All proceeds will support the sustainability and growth of these lush and healthy Gardens.

The RI Living Library & Think Park Gardens serve as a thriving and healthy, hands-on ecological learning hub for youth and adults to explore and learn about nature, and work with soil and plants, so they grow and thrive in an urban setting. 

Bonnie Ora Sherk, Founder & Director of A Living Library, and its nonprofit sponsor, Life Frames, Inc., has been working together with the Roosevelt Island community since 2001. She has  been joined by China Bushell, who is working with the community in transforming the R.I. Living Library & Think Park Gardens into the ecological artwork we see today, and teaching all ages about plants, gardening, and all things natural, including healthy eating and cooking.

Join Us on May 15, and have your pick from a wide array of fresh vegetables, including broccoli, cabbage, peppers, okra, tomatoes, and eggplant; herbs: basil, dill, and fennel; and medicinal flowers, like African Marigolds, Salvia, and Snapdragon and Bee Balm. 

The event will be cash only with the cost of plants ranging from $2.50 – $3.50 with free seeds offered every hour! Come see how environmental education, urban agriculture and sustainable, ecological development helps revitalize Roosevelt Island, and other communities – locally and globally. 

Your contribution will be a big help!  We look forward to seeing YOU !!

The R.I. Living Library & Think Park Gardens are located adjacent to the new Roosevelt Island Public Library and St. Francis X. Cabrini Church behind 504 Main Street, Roosevelt Island, NY.
