About Us

The 462 Halsey Community Garden is a collaborative effort by community residents
to create a green space in Bedford­ Stuyvesant  that  is  dedicated  to  serving  the
community  in areas that include education, agriculture, healthy living, community pride and community ownership.

Our goals are:

● To grow food and forge new community bonds and relationships through mutual hard work
● To offer neighborhood youth a place to develop and grow through hands­on learning and involvement
● To  share  knowledge  on  healthy  and  sustainable  living  for  all  residents  and  to  foster  a  cooperative
learning environment
● To encourage food, social and environmental justice through practice, awareness and advocacy
● To increase access to locally grown food

Our Garden:

462 Halsey is in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7B.  We use recycled materials whenever possible and we constantly strive to minimize our environmental impact via rainwater collection, composting, and more. We adhere to organic growing practices; we do not apply chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers anywhere in the garden, or use chemically treated wood for garden beds.

462  HCG  will  be  open  to  members  all  year  round and to  the general  public  from April  1st  to October  31st (unless otherwise specified for events).  Hours are as follows:

Monday­ thru Saturday 8am­-8pm
Sunday 9am­-6pm
