The deadline to have your block crowned the greenest in the borough is fast approaching.
The last day to enter the 23rd annual Greenest Block in Brooklyn Contest – presented by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in cooperation with Borough President Eric Adams and support from the Brooklyn Community Foundation – is Thursday, June 1.
The yearly contest promotes neighborliness and sustainability by encouraging streetscape gardening, tree stewardship and community development – and involvement – throughout Brooklyn.
Last year, East Flatbush’s own East 25th Street between Clarendon Road and Avenue D took home the title of “Greenest Block in Brooklyn.” A strip in Park Slope nabbed second place, while another in Lefferts Garden was crowned third.
