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.
The history of the Imani Community Garden is rooted in the adjacent Our Lady of Charity Church, whose committee of devoted environmental stewards began tending the site in 1982. Although the garden had experienced insufficient use in former years, there is now a renewed interest in activating the site, where community members hold neighborhood gatherings, grow vegetables and even raise animals, such as chickens and rabbits.
Located in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn—a neighborhood whose residents suffer from asthma rates more than double the citywide average, the Imani Community Garden is a vital green oasis in an area starved for open, outdoor space.
