Clay Avenue Community Garden

HOURS

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.

Founded in 1986 by the Claremont Homeowners Tenants Civic Improvement Association, this well tended garden grows produce ranging from strawberries to callalloo, a vegetable native to the Caribbean. The garden features a beautiful peach tree along with rose bushes, daffodils and tulips. NYRP improvements include the installation of a rainwater collection system along with raised vegetable beds and an herb garden. Community events held at Clay Avenue include gardening workshops, picnics and block parties.
 
At nearly 4,500 square-feet, the garden provides an important green space for Butler and Webster Houses – two New York City Housing Authority properties located across the street. In addition, the garden serves three schools in the neighborhood by engaging students to learn about the outdoors.
