☞ DONATE: Dave's Garden in Hamilton Heights

So far about a third of the $5,000 goal has been met with 19 days left to donate to this local garden. See below for more details and help out this West Harlem community venture to beautify the neighborhood:

The folks over at Harlem Public have started a campaign to raise funds for a community garden at the avenue median on Broadway between 148th and 149th Street.  These Broadway malls are a popular spot for locals to hang out and converse but some are less planted than others.  Harlem Public was opened as a community spot for all to gather at night and the revitalization of the garden will carry that spirit during the hours of the day.  This campaign is a collaboration with the Parks department but will need $5,000 to make it complete and the garden will be named after one of the owner's father who recently passed away after a battle with cancer.  Those interested can get more details at the official indiegogo site: LINK


  1. An admirable effort but five thou? For a block long strip? Really?

  2. Hi Sanou - Understandable concern. 6,000 dollars has already been raised through family and friends of Dave. So this would bring the total to $11,000. In addition, the NY Restoration Project has offered to donate trees and volunteer. And several other private donations for trees, soil, bulbs, shrubs have been secured. We understand that this is a big undertaking, but every bit helps ongoing fundraising will be essential to make sure that any money spent on the initial build-out is not wasted from neglect. Many Thanks to all who have donated. Only a week and a half left in the campaign!
