Roosevelt Community Garden

The Roosevelt Community Garden provides garden members, volunteers and visitors of all ages, abilities and backgrounds with a quiet and enjoyable place to grow organic fruits and vegetables, learn about and share their appreciation for gardening and nature, and build relationships while helping their environment.

The Garden is located at 59 E. Fulton Avenue in Roosevelt, New York.  It contains 49 raised garden beds with picnic tables, gardening tools, sheds and an irrigation system.

The Garden was officially open to the public in 2018, thanks to funding from The North Shore Land Alliance, Nassau County, the Long Island Community Foundation and the New York State Conservation Partnership Program.  The Land Alliance currently manages the Garden and is working closely with the community to identify local organizations who would like to resume ongoing management.
