Wasp Brings Home the Bacon


It was a sunny and warm September day in the garden. Lots of people. Lots of flora and fauna including this hungry determined wasp who struggled hard to get the dead cicada back to the nest for dinner. He was actually able to fly with his dinner for short distances.

Upcoming Event

From the edge of the other side of the world, wild Africa comes alive!

Superimposed sounds of bird species, elephants, lions and monkeys of the African Congo abound within the garden’s site. Designed to startle, engage and enthrall visitors and passersby, this art event is more than mere amusement however -acting as homage and commemorative to the African-American burial ground in which the garden takes it’s name.

Lower Eastside artist, Gregory Lee Pickard, will present a soundscape on September 14, from 3-7pm.
