Urban Cultivation

Hello chive lovers! I recently moved to a great neighborhood in Brooklyn replete with tree-lined parks, various bars and restaurants, green markets, AND an urban garden. My landlords have graciously agreed to let me put a few potted herbs out on the fire escape, and while I am excited to step into the foray of personal urban gardening, I was thrilled to see the little green oasis that is Lentol Garden a mere block away from my house. Community urban garden has always been something I’ve wanted to try and the opportunity has certainly arrived.

From the Lentol Garden FAQ:  Lentol Garden is foremost a memorial garden dedicated to preserving the memory of Ed Lentol, a Greenpoint community leader. The Bayard Street entrance is home to the memorial portion of the green space, while the remainder of the garden is home to an assortment of trees, woodland shrubs and assortment of annual and perrienial plants. Four raised beds exist for vegetable gardening near the Graham Street gate.
