Vinegar Hill Community Garden

The corner of Gold and York Street in Vinegar Hill has been transformed from an empty lot to a community garden. This is what the lot used to look like:

And this is the beginning of the community garden…

Thanks to Sam Bishop of Trees New York, who brought 6 students from his “Urban Forestry” class at The New School to plant fruit trees for the garden. Also thanks to Grown NYC, Etsy and Community First Services for helping to build the shade structure and shed.
