Environmental Volunteer Opportunity

April 29 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Get your hands dirty and do something good for our local environment!

HomeGrown is seeking volunteers to do work at Detective Joseph Mayrose Park. Volunteers are needed to:

Create a Pollinator Garden
Pollinator gardens will be planted with native plants that nurture and support bees, butterflies and birds. Volunteers will help prep beds and plant wildflower seedlings at the park. Children welcome!

Make Wildflower Seed Balls
This volunteer opportunity is especially for children! Children will mix seeds with dirt and clay then scatter the seedballs throughout the park. This is a fun DIY project that will contribute to the Butterfly Garden! *Especially for children!

Learn more about volunteering at the Butterfly Garden and Detective Joseph Mayrose Park at www.homegrownbklyn.org

This project is presented in collaboration with Francesco Simeti’s Swell at Open Source and is sponsored by HomeGrown Parks Volunteers and City Parks Foundation / Partnerships for Parks.
