Morning Glory Community Garden

1219 Hoe Avenue
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.

 

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

St. Vincent & the Grenadines farmers were severely impacted by the recent volcanic eruptions at La Soufrière. Please help by donating seed packets.
