Residents Plan Community Garden in Bed Stuy


    Hopefully another community garden is in the works for Bed Stuy! Neighbors in the Bed-Stuy/Clinton Hill area are trying to develop a publicly owned vacant lot at 100 Quincy Street, near Franklin Avenue. Their first meeting on the matter will be at the site at 11 am Aug. 12. They plan to organize a group of volunteers before obtaining the license to get the keys from the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the agency that owns the lot. And while the group is open to all ideas for the space, they have been throwing around possible plans for a vegetable garden, community green space, and an area to screen films. Here’s the 596 Acres link with a few more details on the lot. GMAP
