Poetry in the Garden


The mural at the GreenSpace garden at President St and Fifth Ave. has gained a haiku by Brooklyn’s poet laureate, Tina Chang. “Encountering verse in a natural setting can deepen the experience of observing the wilderness around us,” said Chang. This is the first of several haikus planned for Brooklyn’s outdoor spaces. On Saturday, Aug. 4 at 4:30 pm, there will be a public reception for the poet in the garden.
