Founded in 2013

The Garden of Life and Health was built as part of the 2013 Gardens for Healthy Communities program within the Mayor's Obesity Task Force Initiative.

The garden includes 20+ raised beds and farm-style rows for growing vegetables, a rainwater harvesting system, shed, and lots of seating.  Members of the community and students from the adjacent PS/MS 29 Elementary and Middle schools work in the garden.
