Hull Street Community Garden

196 Hull Street [map]
Ocean-Hill / Brownsville, Brooklyn
Founded in 1994

Wrought iron fencing encloses this beautiful community garden. Over 20 vegetables, herb and flower beds provide seasonal produce for neighborhood residents. Other amenities include a lawn, pond and underground irrigation. What was once abandoned private and public property, this community garden opened in the summer of 2001 to much neighborhood fanfare. It is now permanent open space.


 


There’s nothing like coming out of the cavernous Union Square subway station to a canopy of tree branches covered in spring blossoms, the tents of the Greenmarket visible just beyond.

And then there’s the smell…strawberries.

Now you can make one of these delicious strawberry recipes!
