The 2nd annual NYC Wildflower Week celebrates all things green and wild in the Big Apple—the hundreds of native flowers, trees, shrubs and grasses that are found in the five boroughs. It gives New Yorkers numerous ways to connect with and be inspired by their local environment. Free activities throughout the city include: botanical walks, garden tours, ecology lectures, children’s events, planting opportunities, cooking classes, and food tastings at top restaurants. It is the largest celebration of National Wildflower Week, an initiative begun by Lady Bird Johnson, and hosted by the Torrey Botanical Society.

Her steadfast commitment to using the finest locally-grown produce and the choicest seasonal ingredients has helped make I Trulli and Centovini two of New York’s favorite restaurants in terms of freshness, quality and variety.
