Golden Harvest Garden

338 Throop Avenue
Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn
Founded in 2013

Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation contacted GrowNYC in May about breaking ground on the new "Golden Harvest Garden" behind Throop Court, a housing complex next to their planned food pantry/commercial kitchen space. GrowNYC had helped the organization create other gardens in the past, and we spearheaded the design process with input from the residents who would use the garden.

Corporate volunteers and community residents helped bring in new soil, build raised beds and plant tomatoes and peppers, as well as flowers the residents picked out to border the garden. Golden Harvest Client Choice Food Pantry opened its doors in June and utilizes the new garden’s harvest to get the healthiest, freshest food possible to clients.
