P.S. 76 Garden
203 W. 120th Street [map]
Founded in 2002
PS 76 Garden, in the heart of Harlem, is a perfect example of everything a school garden can be: it has vegetable, herb, and flower beds in the front of the garden, an arbor with storage bins, perennials along the fences, picnic tables and a mural, and a small stage and lawn in the back of the garden. Several teachers bring students into the garden as often as possible, and whenever volunteers come out to help.
The garden was built in 2002 as a replacement for the Garden of Love, formerly on 119th St, which was bulldozed by the City in 1998.
