Target Community Garden

Monday, December 01, 2008

Back in October, New York magazine ran a great article on New York City's community gardens. I pulled a page out of the issue and pinned it to my bulletin board with the intention of heading over to see the Target Community Garden that very weekend. More than a month later, I still haven't been, but it's definitely on my to-do list (although perhaps my spring list). Check out the photo of the space above.

Also, I was surprised to read that NYC actually has 600+ community gardens--doesn't that seem like a lot? Here's the description and the location for the Target Community Garden, if you're interested in visiting:
Target Community Garden
931-933 Bedford Ave., nr. Willoughby Ave.
One of two NYRP gardens sponsored by the retailer, this 4,000-square-foot garden is open to everyone during the day (unlike some community gardens which have much more limited hours). Local resident Judy Jones gave me a tour. “When you come through the gates, you just let go,” she says. The neighborhood uses it for cookouts, baby showers, dinners. There are 35 members; twelve have plots and raise vegetables.
