All NYRP community gardens hold a minimum of 20 open hours per week. Please check the bulletin board at the garden for times and details.
First established in 1989, the garden is shaded by mature trees and situated adjacent to a large playground dominated by hard surfaces, the Aberdeen Street Community Garden represents an oasis of green surrounded by concrete and asphalt.
In 2006, New York Restoration Project (NYRP) worked with employee volunteers from the Union Square Hospitality Group to clean and revitalize a portion of the garden, installing 14 new tree beds and planting pin oaks and redbuds trees, flowering shrubs and perennials. The garden is also used to compost plant materials.
