  9. 9. Saturday April 25th – Emmaus House Garden Adoption A volunteer group of associates at Grand Hyatt New York, is organizing a green event at the Emmaus House community shelter in the village of Harlem. The Grand Green Team is dedicated to inspiring others to begin green living through the concept of reducing, recycling and reusing. On April 25, 2009, a group of us will work together to create a garden to help not just our mother Earth but also to improve the environment of the people who pass through this shelter. Not only have we decided to start the garden on behalf of Earth Day, but we have also chosen to adopt the shelter’s garden as our own and sustain it throughout the year keeping our green roots and making a difference in our community. We have received help from Blondies Tree house who is providing us with additional tools to work. Pictures of this event to be posted – for now the pictures above show what the are we will be working on presently looks like.
