Ocean-Hill / Brownsville, Brooklyn
Founded in 1994
Wrought iron fencing encloses this beautiful community garden. Over 20 vegetables, herb and flower beds provide seasonal produce for neighborhood residents. Other amenities include a lawn, pond and underground irrigation. What was once abandoned private and public property, this community garden opened in the summer of 2001 to much neighborhood fanfare. It is now permanent open space.
