Warwick Street Greenery Glow Community Garden

601 Warwick Street
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!


This garden is under the jurisdiction of NYC Parks and supported by GreenThumb, the nation's largest urban gardening program. If you are interested in joining, starting, or supporting a community garden, contact NYC Parks GreenThumb

GrowNYC is excited to announce the selection of Angela Davis as its new Director of Retail Food Access and Agriculture. Angela replaces Michael Hurwitz, who is leaving GrowNYC after nearly 15 years of distinguished service to Greenmarket’s farmers and customers.
