Mott Haven, Bronx
Rebuilt in 2016
United We Stand Community Garden and 138th Street Community Garden are two adjacent spaces that together span from 137th Street to 138th Street in the South Bronx. The two gardens combine for one large 32,500 square foot space, playing host to 80+ raised beds, a stage, a gazebo, and a significant amount of seating.
The space was formerly four Green Thumb gardens: El Flamboyan, Sunflower Garden, St. Luke's Park, and United We Stand. Following many years of successful use and a fire that damaged several shade structure, the entire space was razed, internal fences taken down, and completely rebuilt in 2016. More than 100 tons of debris and 60 tons of metal was removed from the garden, and 300 cubic yards of clean fill material provided by The Mayor's Office of Environmental Remediation's Clean Soil Bank program was added as a base for the site.
