Jackson Forest Community Garden

722 Home Street
Claremont Village, Bronx
Originally built in 1993, rebuilt in 2017

Jackson Forest Community Garden is a 9,000 square foot space originally built in 1993. After decades of consistent use, construction on the adjacent street and sidewalk caused the entire garden to be demolished and closed for 4 years.

GrowNYC rebuilt the space in 2017, building raised beds, picnic tables, garden benches, and installing ornamental plantings throughout.
