First established in 1989, Aberdeen Street Community Garden underwent full renovation in 2019/2020 as part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Vital Brooklyn initiative. There are now raised garden beds for growing fresh, organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs; Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant paths and paved surfaces; a greenhouse; and benches, tables, sitting areas, and compost bins. Additionally, there is new fencing, gates, lights, off-grid solar energy, new plantings, a garden storage shed, water supply and irrigation. A prefabricated modular building houses a community room to hold educational programs, community gatherings, trainings, and workshops. The site will also support NYRP Brooklyn-based operations.
