Welcome to the Summit Street Garden Blog
The Summit Street Community Garden was established in 1994 through the efforts of many people in the community, who literally dragged toilets, old tires and trash out of several adjoining abandoned lots. In partnership with the NYC Parks Department and Green Thumb, the Summit Street Community Garden exists to offer a cool, green oasis in the city.
The Summit Street Garden Blog was launched in April of 2009 to serve as a resource not only for our members but for any and all urban gardeners who might be interested in learning more about community gardening. This Blog is an open, participatory and moderated space - an extension of our living garden. We hope this blog serves to document the garden's community events and share "how-to's" on things like gardening, BBQ-ing, composting, planting and harvesting.
If you would like to submit an entry to this blog, please send your post in an email along with any photos (no bigger than 450 pix by 450 pix) to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Posts should be focused on our community and gardening. We might make a few edits and we'll post it as soon as we can. Thanks for stopping by. Check out our calendar on the side bar for our open hours and garden events.
We hope to see you in the garden soon.
