As New Yorkers start the New Year, NYC Parks’ GreenThumb is taking a look back at another successful community gardening season with a review of 2021. Over the past year, GreenThumb added three new gardens to its portfolio and completed significant upgrades and renovations at 24 community gardens across four boroughs, which included 10 projects installing ADA pathways, increasing accessibility by 1,000 linear feet; and eight renovations in partnership with NYCHA. The three new gardens include Sweetgum Garden in the Highbridge section of the Bronx; and two soon to be named gardens in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and Ridgewood, Queens.
NYC Parks GreenThumb today announced the completion of significant upgrades and renovations at 15 community gardens across four boroughs. They include one new community garden, the Garden of Resilience in Springfield Gardens, Queens, as well as four gardens reactivated with new gardening groups in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, East New York, and Brownsville, Brooklyn.
