Veronica DeJesus Dockery (far right), The Home Depot Bedford-Stuyvesant store manager, launched Magnolia Tree Earth Center of Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Green Institute,
a gardening and ecology appreciation instructional program under the deanship of Magnolia board members led by Wayne Devonish, David Mark Greaves, Nancy Wolf and staff assistant Andrea Brathwaite, for the community last Tuesday. The THD team took attendees on a journey through products that make their gardening easier and more efficient, answering questions about planting and growing gardens inside and outdoors.
The Bedford-Stuyvesant branch has spearheaded community beautification, do-it-yourself and neighborhood improvement projects since its opening, and also makes the store center a fun place to shop and a community mainstay.
