An Herb Garden Grows in Flatbush


Sustainable Flatbush recently transformed their community green space, at the Flatbush Reformed Church property on Kenmore Terrace, into a culinary and medicinal herb garden. They host free herbal workshops open to the public, offer internships for Brooklyn high school students, and give educational tours of the native plant garden. They’re planning to grow a total of 30 varieties of herbs in tiered raised beds, planters, and vertical wall gardens. The garden will also contain a mini hoop house for seed propagation, a worm compost bin, a work table and a seating area. Sustainable Flatbush held the first herbal workshop series last Saturday, June 15, and plans to keep them going through the summer. If you’re interested in volunteering or donating to the garden effort, visit the website here. Sustainable Flatbush hopes to raise $3,000 to finish the garden buildout.
