West 104th Street Garden

About

Welcome to the West 104th Street Community Garden.
Visti our website at http://www.west104garden.org

Vacant for two decades, the lots that make up the Garden were overhauled in 1993 with support from the North West Central Park Multiblock Association and Operation Green Thumb, the largest community gardening program in the country. In 1998, Garden members successfully lobbied to have the property made into an official New York City Park to protect it from commercial development.

The East Garden offers the comfort of a shady gazebo, two productive peach trees, and open space for meetings, social events and performances. The West Garden includes a large communal herb garden, a patio for barbecuing and a lovely rose arbor dedicated to the memory of Jesse Crawford, one of the chief organizers of the garden. Ample space in both gardens is devoted to communal garden beds, which are cooperatively tended by members, as well as beds assigned to individual members.

Today, West 104th Garden boasts a membership of over 50 households and is overseen by Green Thumb. Membership is open to all residents of the surrounding neighborhoods.

Welcome to your Garden.

  1. Hello,

    I live in the neighborhood and I have almost finished compost that I cannot use. I was wondering if the garden would like my compost?

    I would be happy to bring it to the garden any time.

    Thanks
    Jessica
