All Brooklyn community gardens are invited to join the Community Garden Alliance. The Alliance's focus is on promoting sustainable gardening practices to support healthy communities of people, plants, and wildlife. It facilitates skill sharing between gardens through workshops and seasonal gatherings and offers an avenue for communication and learning, where personal connections are forged and technical horticultural assistance may be obtained. There is no cost to participate.
Community Garden Alliance members benefit from the knowledge and beauty of Brooklyn Botanic Garden and bring the creative energy of grassroots greening projects back to the institution. Most important, the Alliance celebrates the wisdom, expertise, and experience of community gardeners.
