Community Garden

Overview

No votes yet

The Imani Garden is rooted in the adjacent Our Lady of Charity Church, whose committee of devoted environmental stewards began tending the site in 1982. Surrounded by one- and two-family residences and apartment buildings, this large garden encompasses three city lots and is located in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

In 2008, a group of local residents and permaculturists partnered with New York Restoration Project (NYRP) to restore the site. The garden now grows a wide variety of heirloom fruits and vegetables, and has spaces for the community to use and enjoy. In addition, students from nearby P.S. 140 volunteer their time to help maintain the space, while they learn gardening and landscaping techniques that range from weeding to bulb planting.

Imani Garden aims to implement the best environmental practices to run the garden in a more cost-efficent manner.
