On August 4th, The Mission Continues New York 2nd Service Platoon is deploying back to the South Bronx with Guggenheim Partners to Crotona Park.
Park managers are looking to secure a bright future for the park by completing much-needed maintenance on newly planted trees and cleaning up the surrounding area to create a more beautiful place for the community to call their own.
The work they do on August 4th will ensure that there is a healthy canopy of native trees 20-30 years from now. Projects will include:
- Weeding, mulching, and build a fence around newly planted trees (3-4 months old)
- Weeding and mulching young trees (1-3 yrs old)
- Weeding and edging curbs along pathways
- Turning soil, weeding, mulching, and building wire fencing around a garden near the bathhouse
- Garden restoration by Park's entrance
