A Walking Tour of East Village Community Gardens
Co-sponsored by L.U.N.G.S. (Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens)
Join us on a tour of distinct community gardens that showcase the plants, people, and cultures that make these East Village oases such a vital part of the fabric of the neighborhood. Learn about the history, maintenance, and importance of these gardens, and also meet the gardeners who make it possible to enjoy their beauty.
Founded in 2012, Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens (LUNGS) is a membership organization uniting the remaining 46 community gardens located in the East Village and Lower East Side. The mission is to advocate on behalf of the infrastructure needs and permanence of these gardens and to promote, protect and preserve gardening and open green spaces in New York City. LUNGS has established several garden-based programs benefiting diverse activities of members of the community.
