DANCE! Delirious Dances! ENCHANTED 8/13 3pm & 5pm Brooklyn Botanic Garden

We would never hesitate to share our unending enthusiasm whenever we hear that Edisa Weeks has a new choreographic work to unleash on the world.

YES, we are TOTALLY Psyched!!!



Join DELIRIOUS Dances for a special, mid-summer dance performance of Enchanted at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Enchanted is inspired by the textures, patterns and beauty of plants and flowers native to New York, that are being threatened by invasive species and over development. For info click here.

Hempstead Plains (LI) is the last remnant of native prairie grass in North East America. The prairie grass once covered over 60,000 acres and now due to development and farming, only nineteen acres remain. The site supports populations of endangered and globally rare plants, as well as many insects, butterflies, birds and small mammals, that are at risk of becoming extinct with the vanishing plains.

Edisa volunteered at Hempstead Plains in July, helping to pull up an invasion of Mugwort, Cypress Spurge and Chinese Bush Clover that had formed an offensive patch in the middle of the Plain. Pulling them is a slow, stubborn, tedious labor of love. It felt sisyphean as we were not able to remove the deep tap roots or multiple rhizomes, so they will inevitably grow back, however hopefully we are giving the native plants and grasses a chance to take hold and thrive and keep the invasives at bay.

Hempstead Plains needs volunteers to help with restoration and management efforts. Check out the Friends of Hempstead Plains for upcoming work weekends and ways that you can support.
