Calling All Gardeners - New Community Garden in Park Slope!

edited May 2014 in Park Slope












 















This
summer, Brooklyn has a brand new community garden, GreenSpace on 4th
Avenue
! The GreenSpace Native Plant Community Garden, as it’s officially
known, is on 4th Avenue between Sackett and Union Streets. The
garden will feature native perennials, vines, bulbs and shrubs. There will be a
nursery area for growing new plants, leaf bins for autumn leaf collection and
composting facilities.

The focus will be on cultivating native
plants and on demonstrating environmentally sustainable models of using and
recycling rainwater. We hope that once it's established it will attract local
and migrating birds, and provide a habitat for bees and butterflies.



Now that the warm weather is here, there's plenty to be done in the garden -
ground soil to be laid, compost bins to be constructed, seeds and plants to be
planted. Everyone is welcome to come along and help create this new garden. If
you are interested in getting involved, have tools, garden supplies or money to
donate, or if you just want to find out more, please visit www.greenspaceon4th.org or email Judy at jjanda@igc.org
