Today the garden serves as an anchor of local community gardening groups and as a working model of preservation for an energetic greening movement. We have over 15 fruiting trees, more than 50 flowering shrubs and innumerable herbs, flowers and vegetables. Our fence, also designed by garden members, represents the members’ “hands-on” contributions in creating the garden. And we have a 37-foot internationally-famous and always-controversial sculpture of NYC street treasures created by a garden member and lifelong neighborhood resident. We are one of a network of community gardens which have transformed the environment of the Lower East Side. Most of the other gardens are threatened by development, and we plan to assist other gardens to win permanent status.

The 6th Street and Avenue B Garden has produced a thorough and detailed history of the community and the garden itself. You can download the first part of it here: 6BGardenBriefHistory .
