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!

On this day 50 years ago, 20 million people across the country joined together to fight for a better future for our environment in what became the first Earth Day. The Council on the Environment of New York City (CENYC), now GrowNYC, was born out of the spirit of that day in 1970.
