Woodbine Street Block Association Garden was founded in 1979 by neighbors adamant about maintaining civility in a time of upheaval. Following the New York City blackout of 1977, the city left their block torn apart and streets virtually impassable for nearly three years. Neighbors had to fight for streetlights and for trees to be planted. Built on the ashes of two homes that were burned to the ground, the garden was quickly filled with beds of strawberries, collard greens, and peppers. The current crop of gardeners wish to thank the Block Association and garden elders for the opportunity to restore this garden to its former glory and to let it serve as a beautiful beacon of hope for the neighborhood.
