The Roosevelt Community Garden (RCG) is a public “green” space for individuals, families and local organizations to convene and enjoy nature while growing and cultivating their own gardens. Gardeners will also learn about our environment and its connection to our food source and drinking water and connect with the community.

The garden contains 45 raised beds, which include plots for children and individuals with disabilities. It will also contain a common gathering area for workshops and social activities.

Benefits to our Community:

• Produce fresh, healthy food
• Beautifies our neighborhood, reduces crime and creates a sense of community
