the project

A Small Green Patch is a Community Garden in Brooklyn, NY - We are located at 344-48 Bergen Street between 3rd Ave and 4th Ave. This Project is being set up to collect member fees and donations from the members friends, family and the community. The money gererated will help the garden buy and set up a number of needed tools and events for the community.


  • New fence along back middle lot and the back right corner of the community lot
  • Musical events throughout the summer where we book musical acts and other workshops
  • Block party!!
  • Cable bridge to use when we have to get water from the across the street hydrant
  • New hoses because the old ones run over by cars have holes
  • Truck or Van rentals to pick up needed supplies
  • Random needs, soil, compost, river rocks, mulch, contaners, grow stations, wood and more!
  • Painting supplies for our young and old artists, easels, paints, brushes
  • Drawing supplies for visiting artists.
