The Magic Seed 3.1.16

Hello Members and Supporters,

As we prepare for the 2016 growing season, Lydia’s Magic Garden, located on 110 East 118 street on Park Ave., is looking for members and volunteers within the East Harlem community to help push our project forward. We are looking for dedicated locals that are willing to help make decisions in our monthly meetings and who can also volunteer. Membership is free and all are welcome. For more info contact Oliver Rios at

Garden restoration will begin this week in order to modify some sections of the garden. The mulberry tree in the rear corner and the dead trees at the front will be removed as well as some structural modifications.  These improvements will begin Tuesday March 2nd, 2016 to Friday as needed.

A Blast From The Past!
From 1994-1998 Lydia’s Magic Garden won the Mollie Parnis Dress Up Your Neighborhood award. That’s why we call it the Yankee Stadium of Gardens in Spanish Harlem / El Barrio.
