East 43rd Street Block Association Community Garden

1087 E 43rd Street
Flatbush, Brooklyn
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.

 

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
