Their work is helping people create alternatives: growing their own food, taking care of their own organic waste and opening vital community hubs. They help provide tools for people to find available land, advocate to help them get it, help them navigate city agencies and have the backs of gardeners in NYC.

We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.

El Garden, which hosts BK ROT at 120 Jefferson St. has recently been marked as a site for future development by the city. Although BK ROT is steadily working to build out our permanent site at 1278 Myrtle Avenue, the potential loss of El Garden would be devastating to the surrounding community that has worked hard to build out that space.

In addition to hosting BK ROT’s regular Sunday operation, El Garden has allowed us to partner with other youth organizations, such as Ecostation:NY and Green Guerillaz to host educational workshops in urban agriculture, carpentry and composting. These rewarding projects could not have happened without a community led green space
