As spring comes around, many of us in New York city lack the private outdoor space to fully embrace our green thumbs. PKSB's John Haselbauer and his family have joined a community garden in Brooklyn. Community gardens are a great and inexpensive way for people to not only plant food or other plants, but to connect with their neighbors, and offer opportunity for composting. Additionally, most community gardens are located on plots of land that would otherwise go unused. The garden in these photos is above a DEP-owned water tunnel shaft. Our staff at PKSB participate in a variety of community activities that range across the city's "landscape" from serving on boards to community theater. We are part of the city and that is what makes our projects so important to us.
