Great News!

The city has officially announced its intention to turn the Maple Street Community Garden into public land!

From BKLYNER:

NYC Parks announced the completion of the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) certification for the Maple Street Community Garden, a crucial step in officially acquiring the greenspace. ULURP is a 7-month process that allows an official zone of use change for a piece of land within the city.

We will need as many gardeners as possible to show up for the ULURP meetings that are scheduled for a next few months.  Don’t worry if you don’t understand ULURP, no one does.   But this is a good site where you can learn more if you want.

Please email maple3garden@gmail.com if you are willing to help us fight to preserve this beautiful space for everyone!

Leaves

Maple Street Community Garden needs your leaves!

The garden has a thriving 3-bin compost project that many people in the neighborhood contribute to. We have to balance the wet, green material (your veggie scraps) with dry, brown material. As you rake leaves over the next month, please consider dropping them off at the community garden.

The garden remains unlocked at all times. Open the gate and carry your leaves to the back left (i.e. Northwest) corner of the garden. You can drop your trash bags of leaves next to the compost bins.

If you want to get involved with our composting project, please email maple-garden-composters@googlegroups.com

Thanks!
