East New York, Brooklyn
El Jardin del Pueblo is a 5,300 square foot community garden in East New York featuring 35 raised garden beds, 1,000 and 500 gallon rainwater harvesting systems, a 200 square foot shade structure, and 25 heirloom breed chickens.
The garden was originally three vacant lots owned by NYCs Department of Housing Preservation and Development. The community based organization Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation approached HPD with the idea of turning the lot into a temporary hub for community building, urban agriculture, and organic chicken production.
