East Village Community Garden Tour
The East Village/Lower East Side is considered the nation’s birthplace of the modern day community garden movement and boasts an impressive collection of fifty-three gardens! Each has its own personality and purpose. Join us on this walking tour of several community gardens that will showcase plants, people and cultures that make them such a vital component of their neighborhood. Learn about their collective and individual histories, what it takes to maintain them, and meet volunteer gardeners and organizers who make it possible for the public to enjoy their beauty. Please note this is a walking tour, so wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Co-sponsored by the Community Garden District NYC.
