Walking the East Village!

East Village Community Gardens Tour with Ayo Harrington

The East Village/Lower East Side boasts fifty-three community gardens, each with its own personality. This neighborhood, considered the birthplace of the modern American community garden movement, has lush gardens that reveal so much about the community, art, collaboration, and environmental work in our neighborhoods, and much more. Learn about these gardens’ 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.

Our guide, Ayo Harrington, is an issues-based organizer and community land developer. She has a life-long commitment to social justice and a background in performing arts. She has been involved with numerous community organizations and associations including LES Ready and Gardens Rising.

This event is outdoors and sidewalk accessible. Please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
