The Crow Hill Community Garden, the garden on Franklin Avenue pushed out due to a development, is moving to Dean Street. At Tuesday night’s Crow Hill Association Meeting, members explained that they’ve formed a partnership with the Dean Street Community Garden already in place between Franklin and Bedford avenues. They already moved the Arts Not Arrests art project over to the site (pictured) and all the art classes planned at the Crow Hill Garden for the summer will be held at Dean Street. The Dean Street Garden will also hold a farmers market from June 30th to October 30th.

Today’s HOTD is yet another apparently well maintained Bed Stuy beauty that has been in the same family for many years.
