Stuy Cove has been a unique urban garden for 20 years, but now it's being dispersed to the community to make way for the East Side Coastal Resilience plan. It's Manhattan's only edible food forest, uses permaculture principles and it is almost all Native Plants. The many different kinds of plants will soon be replanted - this map will show you where. <br><br><a href="https://stuyvesantcove.org/">Stuyvesant Cove</a> was started by knowledgeable volunteers to support wildlife and is now run by <a href="https://www.solar1.org/">Solar One</a> - it has provided sustenance for thousands of birds, millions of insects and some lucky human foragers. <a href="https://www.solar1.org/stuyvesant-cove-park/">Read more about it</a> here - it's hard to imagine how many times this verdant place has surprised, delighted, educated, generated new understandings and engaged people. <br><br>Share this map at <a href="https://bit.ly/scplantmap">bit.ly/scplantmap</a> - Add your site suggestions - <a href="https://bit.ly/SCplants">bit.ly/SCplants</a>
We'll miss this delightful carbon-sink, and look forward to its return! We hope that all the plants that came from Stuy Cove thrive in their new locations, and continue to feed our bird, bee and butterfly friends. Stuy Cove is reopening in May 2023!
