Hi! I live very close by and am looking to help build a garden. I’ve done a lot of urban garden and have chickens in my backyard. Please contact me at if you have any information about how to get involved in this project.

CB14 Green's proposal for a backyard garden here Oded, Community Board 14 Green fellow, said last week: we have submitted a proposal to BPL (attached) and waiting on their reply. The library is about to go through general renovation in 2019 and it looks like the most feasible option for the development of a community garden would be to tie it to the renovation project.

CB14 is working on creating a garden here with support from the library, in conversation with us! Oded, CB14 Green's fellow, said: "After visiting the library and getting the support of the main librarian, we just sent a formal proposal to the BPL and are waiting for their approval (which they already expressed over the phone). We are also in touch with local community groups about the creation of a "Friends of the Flatbush Public Library" group that will have stewardship over the garden. " And, "Hopefully we could start getting our hands dirty by May." Woo! Onwards!
