About


Since 2016, Ridgewood residents been growing organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers at our community garden.

Everything is fully shared at the Ridgewood Community Garden, there are no individual plots. This means that we all get to benefit from a bigger and more diverse harvest. It also means that we are always open to new volunteers. During our open hours, anyone can come by and join us to weed, water, harvest, or just enjoy a patch of greenspace. Because of this structure, there's an unusually low barrier to entry for any garden-curious neighbors of any skill level. 

Our garden is located at 54-29 Metropolitan Ave in partnership with Grover Cleveland High School and our open hours are on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
