How Radical Community Gardens Grow!

How Radical Community Gardens Grow!

Community gardens offer far more than just a plot of land to grow vegetables — they provide people throughout the city with space to learn about the environment and connect with other New Yorkers. Each community garden is defined by the life surrounding it, says Aresh Javadi, co-founder of More Gardens!, a group that promotes the preservation and development of community gardens in New York City. Javadi told The Indypendent about 13 unique community gardens, detailed below.

Newly arrived to this country ESL Lower East Side Prep high school students across the street had lovingly put in their new annual vegetable seedlings.
