BCS Cleans Up Bronx Stadium Garden

BCS paired up with community partners to clean up and plant near the 161st street tunnel
Last Friday, the BCS community service crew headed up to Bronx Stadium Garden located at 161st Street and Gerald Avenue (at the 161st Street tunnel). In attendance were supervisors Ramon Semorile, Omar Camacho, myself and four community service clients. We worked together with a 161st Street Business Improvement District staff member and Jennifer Beaugrand from The Bronx Is Blooming. We started by pulling weeds, pruning bushes and planting. The photos speaks for themselves as well as the passion, energy and joy of everyone involved in this project including the BCS clients.
