Bylaws and Guidelines
Greene Acres Community Garden
Bylaws: May, 2004
Article I. Name: The garden on the corner of Greene and Franklin Avenues, block 1953, lots 41-47 is named the Greene Acres Community Garden.
Article II. Purpose: The Greene Acres Community Garden is a community garden, an organic garden, and a public space. Our mission is to improve our own neighborhood by growing food and flora in a vacant lot and to educate ourselves and our neighbors about organic gardening. New members are welcome and the garden is open to the public during hours that are posted. We are affiliated with both Brooklyn Greenbridge and Project Greenthumb. We are also part of the New York Restoration Project.
Prospective garden members must complete 6 hours of garden work during at least one work day. Work days are held the Saturday following the second Monday of each month (that is, the Saturday following the meeting) and as needed, and are listed on our calendar. If you cannot make a work day, contact a garden member to arrange another time to work. The task list for each work day is decided at the preceding meeting, but always includes picking up trash, pulling weeds, filling the water barrels, and watering the trees.
