Ujima I Garden
660 New Jersey Avenue
East New York, Brooklyn
Ujima I Garden was a small, but highly active community garden used by many neighborhood children. It had chess tables, a garden area, a lawn, and soon a small pond. The site also contained an environmental teaching facility which hosted a Saturday Science Program organized by Brooklyn Center for the Urban Environment.
After falling into disrepair, programming of the garden was taken on by Slow Food NYC in 2010. The garden is now flourishing, with youth programs, chickens, bees, and more!
