Vallone helps Astoria garden

Astoria’s community garden, Two Coves, has a new irrigation system and other improvements thanks to the help of a Queens Councilmember.

Councilmember Peter F. Vallone Jr. joined Department of Parks and Recreation Queens Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski at the facility on May 5 to unveil the new system and other improvements to the facility.

“The new irrigation system is a great addition to this area’s longstanding oasis,” Vallone said. “Astoria is fortunate to have this group of conscientious citizens who were able to transform a dilapidated plot of land into a thriving garden.”
