Liz Christy Community Garden
This is the very first Community Garden in NYC! It was started by Liz Christy in 1974 and was named in her memory. Liz Christy Community Garden has always been run by volunteers.
The New York City Office of Housing Preservation and Development leased the land to the Green Guerillas for $1 a month. This helped ignite the community gardening movement and is now supported by Green Thumb, a division of NYC Parks Dept.
