If memory serves me correctly, I was once told that East NY has the largest garden population in the five buroughs. If you like to buy local, this is the place to be! http://eastnewyorkfarms.org/
East New York Farms! grows fresh food for our community and provides support to help others do the same. We manage two urban farms–the UCC Youth Farm and Hands and Heart Garden— and work with an ever-growing network of gardeners representing backyard gardens and many of the over 60 community gardens throughout East New York.
