SPECTRUM: Top-Down

SERVICE IDEA: Community Gardens

CATEGORY: Green Spaces, Socializing

DESCRIPTION: GreenThumb was started as a citywide agency under Ed Koch in 1978 under
severe economic conditions and abandonment of lots. Don't know who had
the idea, but the why is that there were people in these communities who
were reclaiming the abandoned land for use as a garden/green
space/cleaned up and safer & beautified area.”
