ConSERVE NYC Revamps New York Park

ConSERVE NYC Revamps New York Park

Can you think of a better way to make a park beautiful than to plant flowers?  We can’t and neither can the Student Conservation Association (SCA) of New York.  When a 600-foot area of Riverside Park was badly damaged by stormwater runoff, leaving it barren and muddy, an army of SCA volunteers decided to take it upon themselves to return the park to its former glory.

To do so, the SCA planned their ConSERVE NYC event along Riverside Drive in upper Manhattan earlier in the month.  Over 50 volunteers from all five boroughs gathered at Riverside Park and went to work.  Together with the Riverside Park Conservancy, they mixed compost, spread mulch, and planted 850 new flower bulbs!

The Student Conservation Association provides opportunities to young people, giving them a chance to make a positive impact on the world for both themselves and future generations.  The November ConSERVE NYC is only one in a series of conservation events that will continue around the state for an entire year.

Coming together to conserve parks is not only vital, it’s incredibly rewarding.  You can bet that come spring, Riverside Park will be bursting with color and beauty as the flowers bloom and SCA’s hard work comes to life.

We love hearing stories like this because conservation is incredibly important to Flowerlink.  We’re dedicated to growing our roses under the highest environmental standards, and that’s why our boxes carry the seal of international organizations like the Rainforest Alliance, the Flower Label Program, Flor Ecuador, and others.
