Open Garden Day @ The Bears Garden


We opened our garden gates for the first time in 16 months on June 6th for GreenThumb’s Open Garden Day. Batalá was our featured guest for the event, and they really livened up the day with their gorgeous beats!

6/15 Green, a lively community garden located at 6th Avenue and 15th Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn, will hold its annual Fall Plant Sale from 11-4 on Saturday, October 13th and Sunday, October 14th. A wide array of hardy herbs, perennials and indoor plants will be available for your garden bed, planter or window sill. For holiday fun, there will be lots of unusual gourds & pumpkins for sale, too.

Remaining plants will continue to be available for sale during the garden’s Open Hours from October 16th through October 21st. (Tuesday & Thursday from 4-6 and Saturday & Sunday from 10-6)

All sales help cover the expenses of maintaining the garden as a vibrant urban oasis.

6/15 Green will also host its wonderful annual Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 13th from 11-dusk. The rain date is Sunday, October 14th. Festival highlights will include live music and family activities throughout the day.

The public, neighbors and friends are warmly invited to visit this lovely, permanent Land Trust garden throughout the year. It’s a welcome respite from the City’s hubbub that continues to bring its community together.
