Project Overview

The 1 1/2 day project to prep and enhance accessibility to this vibrant community garden. Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Communities volunteers will work with NYC Parks Green Thumb to improve and expand pathway accessibility to all corners of the garden. Accessibility is particularly important for this garden as a number of gardeners are wheelchair users. The garden’s planters will also be repaired and new plants, fruits and vegetables will be installed.
