Meet at the at the Urban Assembly School for Green Careers (Amsterdam Avenue at 84th Street) and “receive a free tree care goodie bag with gardening supplies, curb your dog sign, and other gifts. Mulch, compost, flowers and pails will be provided too!”

Saturday, 2-4 p.m.: The West 111th Street People’s Garden is holding a special event  showcasing the work of local artist Leander Knust, who used reclaimed construction material and garden plants and animals to make an installation called Re-Material Wall. “Leander’s presentation will be followed by a discussion on changes occurring in our neighborhood by members of the Morningside Heights Community Coalition.”

Saturday, all day: The Bloomingdale School of Music is holding its perform-a-thon, where students play music in two locations to raise money for scholarships.
