Morningside Lights: The Secret Gardens kicks off on September 16, 2017 and runs until September 23, 2017. Participants are invited to create lanterns inspired by Harlem's horticultural gems and the resourceful visionaries that tend them. This year's Morningside Lights celebrates the neighborhood's deep tradition of civic activism that blossoms in the gardens carefully cultivated in its many reclaimed spaces.

Each day's workshop activities are a step in the process as our lanterns take shape from idea to final product. Visit for a daily menu of activities, but please note the activities are subject to change based on our progress. No experience is necessary.
