Brooklyn College Garden
The Brooklyn College Garden is a verdant green space on the western edge of the campus where the college and neighboring community come together to learn about sustainable garden practices for urban environments, share gardening experiences, and promote a healthy and active lifestyle, all while fostering a sense of community.
Members grow fruit, flowers, herbs and vegetables in individual and shared plots. Through its practices, the garden offers a model for many aspects of urban sustainability, such as composting and irrigation. The Brooklyn College Garden's aim is to create and nurture a community of novice and experienced gardeners with a strong focus on education.
