Overview

No votes yet

11th Street Community Garden, is a stunning garden wedged between two tenements. Primarily shady due to its location, it is well landscaped and incorporates many best practices in terms of composting, planting, watering, membership, etc., with the help of the Manhattan Land Trust which helps manage the garden along with its local volunteers and was one of the gardens saved from auction by the Trust for Public Land in 1999. Beautifully planted communal flower beds with hydrangeas and other flowers alternate with individual raised plots, pine and other trees, shrubs and a lovely wooden semi-circular benched patio to create an integrated and serene space. Rain barrels have just been installed to recycle rain water. The entrance way with a simple wooden trellis and vines is immediately inviting. Situated across from Open Road Park Garden which is designed primarily for the students of the neighboring school with its fantastic wall murals and a rambling look, the 11th Street Community Garden is a much quieter and elegant affair.

This looks like a lovely space. Our backyard shares a wall with the garden, and it's so nice to see it from our windows instead of another apartment building. I am curious how to become a member or volunteer, since I live so close by. We have a compost pile in our backyard as well and would be up for donating some to the garden come spring! If anyone knows who to contact, let me know! Thanks.
