GMC teamed up with eight lifestyle bloggers from around the country for the second annual “Lend a Green Thumb” event. The crew pulled together to spruce up Convent Garden, a community garden that lies in the heart of the Sugar Hill section of Harlem in New York.
Convent Garden, formerly the site of an abandoned gas station, was transformed by the passionate caretaker Juliette “Miss Miami” Davis along with the support of many neighborhood volunteers into a true urban oasis – a slice of green space full of chirping birds and colorful flowers in the middle of northern Manhattan.
To help with upkeep of the garden and beautification, the bloggers loaded up five 2013 GMC Terrain Denalis with various flowers, plants and other garden supplies from Sprainbrook Nursery in Scarsdale, N.Y., a small family run business nearby. The group then drove to Convent Garden to drop off the goods, which included additional gardening supplies donated by Corona Tools, Proven Winners and Miracle-Gro.
After all the items were unloaded, Miss Miami and other community neighbors treated the bloggers and GMC team to neighborhood block party – including a good ol’ home-cooked barbecue and tour of the garden.Even the local pastor from the church across the street strolled over to lend a hand.
