An appreciation: 9th Street Community Garden
EVG reader Dan Efram shares these photos of his favorite local community garden — the 9th Street Community Garden on the northeast corner of Ninth Street and Avenue C.
"I lived upstate and this garden registers with me because it has such a home-grown appeal," Efram says. "The people there are always very welcoming, but you do know that you are entering their home. They put so much love into it."
The garden, which encompasses an acre, started in 1979. Its hours are Friday 5-8 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday from noon-6 p.m. Find more info here.
Of course there are nearly 40 other community gardens in the neighborhood to enjoy. Find a list here. Meanwhile, The Guardian filed a story this week looking at the past, present and future of the local community gardens. Find that article here.
