Morning Glory Community Garden

Crotona Park East, Bronx
Founded in 2014

Morning Glory Community Garden was built as part of the 2014 Gardens for Healthy Communities program within the Mayor's Obesity Task Force Initiative.

From 2009 to 2011, Morning Glory Community Garden was a successful community garden at 149th Street and Southern Boulevard in the South Bronx.  The garden's recent relocation to Hoe Avenue has provided its members with a 9,500 square foot green space that currently features 18 raised beds, picnic tables, a shed, and border plantings.  The garden also has plans for a stage and rainwater harvesting system.

It’s easy to put fall leaves to good use through composting in NYC.  Learn how, and find our leaf bag giveaways here!
