From the Ground Up – The Gardens of the Horticultural Society of NY

From the Ground Up is an upcoming exhibit put on by The Horticultural Society of New York a.k.a “The Hort”. Duggal generously co-sponsored over 15 16×20 digital c prints for the exhibit.

For 30 years, The Hort has been building gardens throughout the city—at public libraries, in supportive housing facilities, even on Rikers Island. Our projects, which range from therapeutic gardens to rooftop farms, are designed by our professional staff in collaboration with public and private partners and built largely by participants in our workforce development programs.

The photographs in From the Ground Up showcase a selection of our projects, including a rooftop farm at Georgia’s Place, a homeless housing facility in Crown Heights; a garden at the Whitestone Branch of the Queens Library; and a rainwater garden at the 176th Street Community Garden in the Bronx.

This exhibition also highlights the workers behind the gardens, including graduates of our Rikers Island GreenHouse program, members of our GreenTeam workforce development program, and students in our Growing Green Academy.

The exhibit will be held from August 16th – 31st, 2012 from 12 to 6pm Monday – Friday.
