Spencer's Little Heaven is a small L shaped garden adjacent to Pratt Area Community Council Housing. The garden, designed by community members, with the expertise of GrowNYC features a picnic area & extensive plantings including butterfly attracting plants & herbs. There is a small pond. Along one wall is a mural created by community children that depicts a streetscape of the garden and surrounding block.There is also an U shaped vegetable bed that is shared by residents and children from PS3 across the street.


As New York City and State responds to COVID-19, we want to update you on the steps we are taking--and recommending to you--to maintain GrowNYC Greenmarkets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites as vital community spaces in this time of uncertainty.

  • Food Access & Agriculture

    Our network of Greenmarket farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Conservation

    We provide food scrap drop-offs, clothing collections, Stop 'N' Swap® community reuse events, and zero waste trainings to make resource conservation easy for all.

  • Green Space

    We build and rejuvenate community & school gardens in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, & more.

  • Education

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 66,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
