More Gardens! needs your astute help.
The existing More Gardens! building, in the South Bronx is unexpectedly being sold, and we have sadly said goodbye to it.
We would love to find a donated or super cheap office location in the South Bronx or Harlem which would be accessible to all people. Please see below for details regarding requirements and preferences.
If you have any leads or ideas, please contact Lovaeta at 917-279-3229 or Aresh at 917-518-9987.
Thank you very much.
