Eagle Slope / Nueva Granja

586 Westchester Avenue [map]
Melrose, Bronx
Founded in 2014

Built as an aquaponics lab in 2014 and rebuilt as a large community garden in 2015, Eagle Slope and Nueva Granja were originally constructed as a part of the Gardens for Healthy Communities program within the Mayor's Obesity Task Force Initiative.

The 8,000 square foot lot overlooks the elevated subway tracks and features 20+ raised beds, several greenhouses, picnic tables, benches, and a shed.

Locally grown Christmas trees, wreaths, and boughs will stay fresher longer and smell amazing.
