2020 Events at Kingsland Wildflowers!

Join Newtown Creek Alliance for a series of open hours and hands-on gardening events to experience, enjoy and help keep the meadows of  Kingsland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages healthy, lush and ecologically productive. Located in the heart of industrial Greenpoint, with striking views of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, Newtown Creek and the Manhattan and Long Island City skylines, the green roofs (25,000 sq feet total across 5 different roofs) feature native wildflower meadows, public access paths, outdoor sculptures, and environmental monitoring research equipment.

The volunteer events are focussed around hands-on activities and we encourage participants with an interest and/or experience with gardening to join. Our open hour days and special events are best suited for families and general visitors looking to experience the meadows, learn more about the local ecology and Newtown Creek (Check out the Kingsland Wildflower Festival on July 11th!).

All events are free and any necessary gardening tools for volunteers will be provided. Please RSVP at the links below. We will update this page as more events are planned. All events will meet at:

Kingsland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages
520 Kingsland Ave, 4th Floor Community Room
Brooklyn, NY 11222
