Founded in 2014

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

The 9,000 square foot garden is located near Corporal Thompson Park and next to the West Brighton Swimming Pool.  It currently features 25 raised garden beds and picnic tables, and will soon also feature a shade structure and rainwater harvesting system.

At GrowNYC, there’s no stopping when it comes to swapping!  We reduce NYC’s waste by helping New Yorkers reuse perfectly good items at community swap events made possible by dedicated staff, our passionate volunteers, and diverse community partners.
