Red Shed Community Garden

Red Shed Community Garden is a volunteer-run community organization and public green space. Our gate is often open, and all are welcome to enjoy the space. Regular open hours will resume in spring 2022.

We practice sustainable, organic gardening, rainwater collection, and composting. We are supported by NYC Parks’ GreenThumb project.

Please join us at an upcoming work day.

We promote…

Organic urban gardening

We collect rainwater, compost organic waste, and grow all plants organically. Our plant selection feeds the community, remediates soil, and sustains pollinators.

Community involvement

Members commit to working in the garden and supporting open hours. All members may use shared garden space and harvest vegetables, fruit, and herbs from our community plots. Private plots are available on a limited basis.

Public access

Members of the garden maintain open hours throughout the gardening season, and the public is welcome whenever the gate is open.

Environmental education

The garden is an educational resource and provides space for community events. Events and workshops are posted on our calendar. Red Shed Garden is the pick-up location for the East Williamsburg CSA (Community Support Agriculture).
