Open Garden Day NYC

Open Garden Day NYC is Saturday, July 14th, 2018 from 11am to 3pm! This special day will allow you to tour dozens of community gardens across NYC. These gardens will be opening their doors to the public for a day of free activities, including arts and music, greening and composting, food and environmental justice events and more.

The open gardens represent some of the more than 550 community gardens overseen by GreenThumb, the largest community gardening program in the country. Gardens range from small community spaces meant for relaxation to large plazas and urban farms. More than 20,000 community gardeners volunteer their time to manage these vital open spaces.

One of these gardens is in our neighborhood …  the Mobilization For Change Community Garden, located at 955 Columbus Avenue (at 107th).

Activities here will include making solar toys and helping to set up the garden’s solar fountain.
