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.
This garden is under the jurisdiction of NYC Parks and supported by GreenThumb, the nation's largest urban gardening program. If you are interested in joining, starting, or supporting a community garden, contact NYC Parks GreenThumb.
