Raking leaves is a meditative undertaking that can calm your soul and…who are we kidding, it’s backbreaking! But leaf-raking is important and you can help out the Riverside Park Conservancy this Saturday by raking leaves in various parts of the park. The leaves will be composted and turned into mulch which will be deposited back in the park.

The event lasts from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. in various parts of the park. To learn more email grassroots@riversideparknyc.org. “Jumping in piles encouraged,” the conservancy said. Learn more here.

      It’s nice that people are helping out. But. We left our big lawn behind in New England for the City so we would never have to rake another leaf again. Hey. Have fun!
