Warwick Street Greenery Glow Community Garden

East New York, Brooklyn
Founded in 1997, Rebuilt in 2016

GrowNYC worked with a bevy of community-based organizations to rebuild the defunct and abandoned Warwick Street Greenery Glow Community Garden in the Spring of 2016.  GrowNYC's contribution was the construction of the garden's raised beds, with the Nature Conservancy, Green Thumb, East New York Farms, and 596 Acres all playing a major role in community organizing and design of the site.

Many partners make light work, and we're thrilled that East New York has a new 2,500 square foot open space to enjoy!

There’s nothing like coming out of the cavernous Union Square subway station to a canopy of tree branches covered in spring blossoms, the tents of the Greenmarket visible just beyond.

And then there’s the smell…strawberries.

Now you can make one of these delicious strawberry recipes!
