The Ridgewood Garden on the corner of Cypress Hills Street and Otto Road is seeking for volunteers.
Ridgewood’s George Negoescu spent years creating the Garden, but as a man in his 70s, he’s finding it difficult to maintain throughout the winter.
According to Gail Grabowski on the Glendale Civic Association Facebook, they are applying for an NYC Neighborhood Grant, but will still be seeking volunteers. She posted:
Having a core volunteer group which George and I call Friends of Ridgewood Garden will improve our chances of being awarded the Neighborhood Grant, so please consider helping out if you can. Also, George has always considered Ridgewood Garden our garden, not his, and wants to thank all those who go out of their way to leave the garden as neat and clean as they found it.
If interested, you can reach Grabowski through a GoFundMe page for the garden.
