Forsyth Garden Conservancy

Sara D. Roosevelt Park
Lower East Side, Manhattan
Founded in 1994

This community garden is located in Sara D Roosevelt Park on the southside of Delancy Street. The Forsyth Garden Conservancy augmented perimeter plantings and protected them with fencing. They also created the Hua Mei Bird Garden, where local residents bring their song birds and congregate.
