This vegetable garden sponsored by the block Association received material and technical assistance from TPL and GrowNYC. A large pavilion and tool shed occupy the rear of the garden. Bluestone pathways with some old sidewalk slabs were added. The garden also features a master compost station with a scale to record contributions. The Green Guerillas helped the gardeners create a mosaic mural. A rainwater harvesting system catches water from an adjacent building. A special feature is a memorial dedicated to fallen black firefighters.
