The garden was created in 1978 by Hell's Kitchen residents who cleared out the rubble from a long-vacant lot and began planting it with flowers, herbs, fruits, and vegetables. The garden is organized into two main sections. There is a Front Garden and a Back Garden. The Front Garden is open to the public, key holders as well as visitors who may ask to be let in if the gate is closed. When visiting the garden, please respect our rules, posted on the front bulletin board.
The Clinton Community Garden, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization managed by a steering committee composed of gardeners elected at our annual membership meeting held the first Tuesday in March. Check the bulletin board for exact time, location, and date. The garden is licensed by the New York City Parks Department through GreenThumb and is open to key holders from approximately post-sunrise to pre-sunset 365 days a year, depending upon weather, darkness, and time of year*. All gardening and maintenance is done by volunteers. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation in support of this garden, please send your check to: Clinton Community Garden, P.O. Box 214, New York, NY 10108-0214.
