Founded in 2015

Built in partnership with Brooklyn-Queens Land Trust, East 43rd Street Block Association Community Garden is 8,000 square feet and features a dozen raised beds, a children's garden section, picnic tables, and garden benches.

The garden was built with the support of Councilman Jumaane Williams, who spearheaded the effort to bring Flatbush its first community garden.
