There is a community garden here in the neighborhood, on Gates and Patchen, that has been neglected and is in danger of being closed down. It’s currently owned by the Parks Department, and apparently there has been no activity in it at all.
So if you, or your group, or a group of people you know, are interested in getting a community garden going, this is your chance! It would be great if someone was able to restore this garden and keep it in the hands of the community.
If you wants to learn more about it and find out how to get working on the garden, please contact Bilen Berhanu of GreenThumb at 212-788-8060 and she’ll help you out.
