Today is Brooklyn Botanical Garden's annual community horticulture event devoted to urban agriculture and building a healthy food system in our borough, Making Brooklyn Bloom. This year's event, "Edible NYC: Green It! Grow It! Eat It! and is (and beyond) features "15 hands-on workshops to help educate city residents on how they can grow food at home and make their neighborhood a little bit greener by doing so. Apartment dwellers with a single windowsill might take Savoring Home-Grown Herbs Year-Round; those with a small outside area or even fire escape can learn from The Sky's the Limit: Growing Food on Trellises; and for brownstone residents with-- gasp! -- a yard, The Edible Palette: Food Producing Plants for the Decorative Landscape is ideal.

Brooklyn Museum First Saturday

If you cross over the East River, living in the shadows of the Manhattan museums, and with way less foot traffic from city tourists, you will find the Brooklyn Museum. Every first Saturday of the month admission is free (thanks to big name corporate sponsorship) beginning at 5pm and there are a slew of events for the whole family. This month is a celebration of feminist art with a dance party, film screenings, and discussions. Full schedule here:
