Community Impact: Project EverGreen returns to New York City to help revitalize Clinton Community Garden on the city’s Lower East Side and create an area where neighborhood residents can relax and grow fresh vegetables. The first phase of the project will see a new gravel entry path into the garden added, the site regraded to eliminate standing water and fresh soil added to new planter boxes. In phase two (Spring 2019) a shade garden bed will be installed, the planting bed will be raised, a second garden bed constructed, and new plantings including ornamental shrubs, flowers and vegetable plants will be added.
