A Firefly Fourth of July in M’Finda Kalunga Garden

Must Read

Here’s an interesting alternative to the traditional fireworks show. On Wednesday, July 4th, fireflies will light up M’Finda Kalunga Community Garden.  The “natural” celebration gets underway at 8 p.m. in the garden, located at Rivington Street in Sara D. Roosevelt Park.

While you’re in the garden, you can check out “operation lady bug!”  A week ago, 140,000 of them were set loose in the garden; it’s part of a strategy to fight aphids, the harmful plant pest.  M’Finda Kalunga Garden activist K. Webster sent along a few photos from last Sunday’s community event, which delighted a whole lot of kids, and some adults, too.  You can read more about the lady bug release on Inhabitat, the LES-based design blog.
