Founded in 2006

The Morris-Jumel Community Garden has an active community of garden friends and members who grow flowers, vegetables and herbs. It is situated in the Morris-Jumel Mansion historic district, and the land on which it grows has a long history. Most notably, it was the location of the original eighteenth century vegetable gardens of the Morris Jumel Mansion.

 

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
