We've heard from Green Thumb!!! They're reviewing our packet of information (including the names of our volunteers, our possible lot plans, the results of our survey, and much more) and will be discussing with HPD our use of the space. Very exciting!

I live across the street, and while I think this is a fabulous idea, just curious if you have any interest in the much larger lot across the street at 91 Quincy? It is owned by the church and there are already several families farming it.

Hey! I live on this block and had been in contact with Bushwick City Farms- an all-volunteer group that help residents transform empty lots into community farms, and helps run and maintain them! it would be perfect for this space!

I'd love to set up a time to meet and see who's interested in making this happen! Anytime before noon during the week, Saturday afternoons, and Sunday mornings are all good times for me. Once we pick a date, we can get some fliers out and see who else shows up!

Awesome! Maybe it's time to get the neighbors together for a meeting! Here's what you'd need to get a license (a document that gives you permission) from GreenThumb:

greenthumbnyc.org), A GROUP NEEDS:


  • The names of 2 Primary gardeners + (at least) a list of ten volunteers (full contact info);


  • A letter from the Community Board in support of the project and group (You can see info about your Community Board by clicking the "democracy map" link above.);


  • A name for the proposed garden/group being formed to look after the garden; and


  • A letter of 596 Acres describing the community (which we'd be happy to write once we know you all a tiny bit better!)
