Kingsland Wildflowers is kicking off Climate Week 2019 with an incredible lineup of unique and local lineup of organizations and artists all coming together to celebrate Greenpoint as a hub of environmental activity.
The native rooftop meadow and wildlife habitat located on the banks of Newtown Creek, a federal Superfund site, was created through a close collaboration of private and non-profit entities looking to rewrite the narrative on the possibilities of the cohabitation of ecology and industry. This annual festival aims to bring awareness to Greenpoint’s and the surrounding communities' long-standing environmental burden and its transition to a cleaner, healthier future as well as the global climate crisis and the potential for local, community-based solutions.
Lesley Kernochan will be offering music on the rooftop garden from 5-8pm. For the full line up please head to the website: http://www.kingslandwildflowers.com
