Smart Garden Exhibit


October 2016–January 2018
Steinhardt Conservatory

Gardens can play a big role in conserving water and preventing pollution, especially in cities. In conjunction with the opening of the Shelby White and Leon Levy Water Garden, this year's gallery exhibit in the Steinhardt Conservatory explores solutions to some of the big environmental challenges cities face in the 21st century. The display highlights BBG's Water Conservation Project, projected to reduce the Garden's outdoor freshwater consumption by almost 96%. Visitors will also learn how to create their own sustainable gardens that conserve water and make the city cleaner and greener. Tips for families and children are also included!


Smart Garden is a project of Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Green Garden, Green City initiative to explore and model urban water conservation.
