Gardens serve, teach, and inspire young and old alike. In honor of 100 years of The Brooklyn Botanic Garden's groundbreaking Children's Garden, BBG celebrates the ways that gardens provide common ground for bringing generations together with their annual Making Brooklyn Bloom event. Now in its 33rd year!

With free workshops, films, information and more, the event is a wonderful opportunity to socialize with other local gardeners. Expect some giveaways and freebie handouts including brochures, catalogs, and more.

The event is this Saturday March 8th from 10am to 4pm. Workshops always fill up quickly, so if you go, make sure you get there before 10am and sign up for the goodies so you're not left out! Workshops include:
