Sigma Delta Tau volunteers help us create a new garden

On June 24th, 2017, Theodore Roosevelt Park held one of its largest volunteer events of the year. More than 100 volunteers from Sigma Delta Tau, a national sorority, visited the Upper West Side to join Partnership for Parks personnel, GreenLife Interns, and NYC Parks & Recreation gardening staff in cleaning, weeding, and creating a new flower garden at Columbus Avenue and 81st Street.

Hundreds of new flowering plants

The Sigma Delta Tau volunteers donated hundreds of new plants, including heuchera, hosta, hellebore, hydrangea, mahonia, anemone, and Japanese forest grass. Volunteers also weeded extensively throughout the park. In addition to being one of the largest volunteer events this year, it was one of the most productive.

What is Sigma Delta Tau?

Sigma Delta Tau is a national sorority with more than 60,000 members. They are committed to empowering women, and as observed last week, dedicated to beautifying parks.
