A thank you to the New York Parks Department...
Earlier this month we once again enjoyed hosting the ASF annual Sunset Tea (and Pimms) on the Rooftop Garden of the Arsenal Central Park. It was a lovely evening and we were delighted to welcome 14 new members to the ASF that evening.
As a thank you to the Parks Department the ASF and Burns Society of New York gifted a Japanesse Maple to the Roof Garden.
ASF Chairman, Kenneth Donnelly, is pictured with Camilla Hellman, ASF President, Greg Keyes, Burns Society Treasurer, and Crista Carmody, Senior Horticulturalist, NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, who spoke on the history of the Arsenal and the Roof Garden, before leading a tour and answering questions about the plants and care of the unique garden.
