Lincoln Berkeley Community Garden


Overview:
Lincoln Berkeley Community Garden was founded in 1977 as a small shaded woodland retreat, a green space nestled in the busy urban environment. Over the years it has evolved to be a community hub for the residents of Park Slope. Today, the garden has matured into a small oasis of tranquility, a peaceful and restful place where you can relax, enjoy nature and escape from the daily grind. The garden has a strong membership and it’s a community hangout, with regular events, workshops and fundraisers for adults and children to enjoy. Lincoln Berkeley Community Garden has a composting program to enrich and maintain the soil of its garden, making it self sustained.
