The Brooklyn Alliance of Neighborhood Gardens (BANG) Land Trust is a group of 5 like minded gardens working together to maintain their gardens as open spaces in perpetuity. Each garden is a gem within their neighborhood. Gardens include: 6/15 Green, Bears at Pacific Street, Greenspace at President Street, Pacific Heights Community Farm and Warren St Marks Community Garden. Donating to BANG helps fund each of these gardens!
Movie Night 2014, a cherished tradition at GreenSpace.
Community gardens often have to get creative when it comes to making improvements or sourcing materials for their cash-strapped gardens. That’s why the spirit of DIY is so strong in many urban & community gardeners you’ll come across!
Here’s some great ideas from Mother Earth magazine on building a better tomato cage.
The BANG gardens say yes to Spring!
Yes, you heard right! We’re certifying our BANG gardens as wildlife habitats.
So we have some people to thank for their commitment and hard work to keep our BANG gardens open. We took a Saturday (September 28) to give thanks and praises.
Our July 27th Movie Night at Greenspace@President was quite the event with garden members, neighborhood families, and passersby dropping in to watch some Sci-Fi classics courtesy of Movie Mike, hosted by BANG and the members of Greenspace.
Did you know BANG is hosting Movie Nights in the Gardens this summer?
Okay, well now you do!
Thanks to the LTA for granting much needed funds to get our BANG Land Trust off the ground and running!
Don’t forget to get your tix for the Taste of Fifth 2013, Wednesday, April 10th at 6:30pm, where every $20 bucks of the ticket price goes to a local charity of your choice. BANG’s very own Greenspace@President Street is on the list of charities so you know the money will be going to a good cause!
