Green Thumb Volunteers Freshen Up Fresh Creek

Ms. D. Washington enjoys lending a hand. The City’s Parks Department tries to keep up with the environmental conditions at Fresh Creek, which runs along East 108th Street. Many residents continue to do their part year round by volunteering with NYC Natural area. Last Friday, community activist Maria Garrett was among the residents and volunteers who helped restore greenery, planting Hyssop Leaf Palm Grass along the natural area. The creek needed an extensive makeover following Hurricane Sandy.
