9th Street Wildflower Corridor

Brooklyn, NY

Future Green Studio collaborated with the Gowanus Canal Conservancy and NYC Wildflower Week to create the 9th St Wildflower Corridor. Planters hand crafted by volunteers from the Gowanus Canal Conservancy’s Clean and Green program with FGS guidance line the blocks between 2nd Avenue and 5th Avenue along 9th Street in Brooklyn. Volunteers planted the hand crafted containers with a diverse palette of wildflowers on May 17th in conjunction with the launch of Wildflower Week. Stewards from the community have been recruited to care for the planters and to document their growth throughout the season. Additional planters will be added each spring and will eventually run the entire length of 9th Street from the Gowanus Canal to Prospect Park. The resulting corridor will be a dynamic connective path of native plants and pollinator habitats that lend beauty to the streetscape.
