• Decatur Street Community Garden

    In this green space, community residents and schoolchildren cultivate significant quantities of vegetables including peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, beans, and basil. The garden also features benches located beneath the shade of a beloved crabapple tree and perfect for those seeking a spot to relax or find refuge from the summer heat.

    Neighborhood gardeners have ingeniously recycled many found materials to construct pergolas, propagation stations and sitting areas. In 2019, thanks to New York State’s Vital Brooklyn initiative, the site was updated with a water supply and new infrastructure, including sidewalks, pathways, and new garden beds.
