Holiday in the Garden

 Holiday in the Garden

On Saturday, December 9, spirits were bright in Edgemere at the first ever Holidays in the Garden celebration at The Garden by the Bay.

The first annual event at the Garden by the Bay (480 Beach 43rd Street) brought families out for cookie decorating, hot chocolate, food, ornament making, festive bingo, and a tree lighting to end the evening. The event was made possible by gardener Angie Chait and Jackie Rogers, President of the Garden by the Bay and President of Edgemere Alliance, along with some sponsorship by Councilwoman Selvena Brooks-Powers and NYC Parks. The councilwoman and Rockaway Parks Administrator Eric Peterson were both among the 100 attendees at the event, along with members of JBRPC, NYC Plover Project, GreenThumb NYC, Edgemere Farm, FRANC and more.

“It was such a wonderful holiday gathering, our first annual,” Chait said.
