Roosevelt Community Garden
The Roosevelt Community Garden was established in 2018 to provide community members and visitors of all ages, abilities and backgrounds with a quiet and enjoyable place to grow organic fruits, vegetables and herbs, learn about and share an appreciation for gardening and nature and build relationships while helping the environment.
The Garden is also used as an outdoor classroom where community members, especially youth, can learn about sustainable agricultural techniques, water conservation practices and the nutritional benefits of food that they have helped to grow for their own consumption.
The Garden boasts 49 garden plots, gardening tools, two sheds and access to water. Organic practices are utilized, so not pesticides or other chemicals are permitted. An annual membership provides garden members access to the garden, starting early April until November 30; a garden plot which, contains quality soil; water; starter seeds; gardening tools and educational resources. Plots are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Garden was built in partnership between North Shore Land Alliance and Nassau County. For more information about the Garden please contact the North Shore Land Alliance at 516-922-1028.
