the project

At Eagle Slope Community Garden, our goal is to create an urban oasis where community residents can learn to garden and work together for a better and healthier neighborhood   We believe that it is vital to involve our youth in gardening as well as introducing them to healthy and fresh food alternatives.  Our lives are often hectic and chaotic.  Our hope is that every visitor to the Garden feels welcome and feels refreshed and revitalized when they leave, creating a positive experience for gardeners and visitors alike.

Our shed was repeatedly broken into and is behind repair, moreover it is too small for the size of our garden.

The existing greenhouse had to be taken down last fall because the wood structure was rotten.



the steps

All donations will be used for the purchase of the materials/kits. All labor will be provided by our garden members and volunteers from the community.  After the funds become available the kits will be purchased. Volunteers will be organized and together with our members we will hold two events to build them.

why we're doing it

Our group has worked very hard for years to build a community garden out of the vacant lot it once was, in order to create a more beautiful and healthy South Bronx.  Realizing our goals will allow Eagle Slope to continue to provide access too fresh, nutritious foods for a community of people who live in a county with some of the worst health issues due to poor nutritional choices.  Additionally, by promoting healthy food, Eagle Slope Community Garden provides the opportunity for neighborhood residents to reconnect with the environment. The shed and the greenhouse will help our garden to continue our path. Learning how food is grown and where it comes from will create a better understanding of the food system.  It will also increase awareness about the connections between diet, health and the environment.
