Daisy Hoyt, Park Manager
Daisy Hoyt has always had an interest in all things green and growing, from her rural beginnings upstate, where her parents named her after a flower, to her adult career, where she has held many different jobs in horticulture. In 2007, she brought her skills to NYC, where she began working in landscaping and the arts. Soon after, she began at Solar One, and in 2010 she became the Park Manager. Daisy fully supports and believes in Stuyvesant Cove Park’s mission to use only native plants and sustainable practices. She has an abiding affection for all her plants, and enjoys meeting all the characters who come through the park- especially if she can get them to volunteer.
Chris is a lifelong resident of the East Village and has spent lots of time enjoying our great city parks. But Stuyvesant Cove Park is like no other. Hardly a day goes by without a jogger, a dog walker, or even someone on a lunch break asking him a question like, “When will the Purple Astors be in full bloom?” or “Are those berries edible?” Chris spent some of his youth in the great outdoors, hiking the woods and hills of New Hampshire. He pretends to be a potter and loves working with clay, and taking pictures has always been fun for him. Chris also enjoys MOMA , MMA, Folk Art Museum and all the rest, really.
A graduate of the Million Trees NYC Training Program, Jordan followed MillionTreesNYC’s Ecological Restoration track, landing in the perfect spot – Stuyvesant Cove Park. The MillionTreesNYC Training Program was perfect preparation for Jordan’s position as Gardener at Solar One’s sustainably-managed Park.Growing up in the Bronx, Jordan began working in horticulture at Sustainable South Bronx, through their Bronx Environmental Stewardship Training for Ecology. He first learned about native and invasive species at the Million Trees training program, and was excited to join the Solar One team and learn more about all the different kinds of native plants in Stuyvesant Cove Park. Each summer, he contributes his excellent people and gardening skills to maintaining the Park.
