About Making Brooklyn Bloom: This year’s conference theme is GREENING TOGETHER: PEOPLE, PLANTS, JUSTICE. Workshops include community conversations regarding issues of urban ecology, wellness, stewardship, and the connections required of concerned citizens engaged in transforming lives and neighborhoods. In addition to workshops, panel discussions, breakout sessions, and more, this year’s Making Brooklyn Bloom will mark the conference’s return to the Palm House, where visitors are invited to network with dozens of NYC greening organizations.
