Greene Acres Community Garden is located on the corner of Franklin and Greene Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The Garden has also been known as Frank Greene Garden, Franklin Avenue Community Center, Sunflower Garden for People, Revolutionary Garden Workers Collective, and, not long ago, the Empty Lot on the Corner.
Greene Acres is open to the public Fridays from 5-7PM, Saturdays from 2-7PM and Sundays from 11AM to 2PM April through October, weather permitting. All are welcome to stop by during open hours to work, sit under the Paulownia tree, or chat. Donations of plants, tools, and snacks are welcome. We always welcome new members. Come to a meeting or work day or get in touch if you want to be involved.
We have an active compost program. Please come by the garden or attend a meeting to ask about becoming a composting member.
