Event Details


Date & Time: Sunday, May 15, 12:00 - 3:00 PM

Location: Meet at either location (see map here) for self-guided tour

Guide: Chris Kreussling, aka Flatbush Gardener, and Louise Bruce, Compost for Brooklyn

Description: Self-guided tour. The two locations are about 3/4 miles from each other: a 30 minute leisurely walk through beautiful neighborhoods or a short bus ride along Coney Island Avenue.
Over the past 6 years, Chris has transformed a dusty, weedy backyard into a garden oasis of over 50 species of native trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses and wildflowers. He's documented the process on his gardening blog, Flatbush Gardener. The garden will be at or near peak Spring bloom for the tour.

Compost for Brooklyn has transformed a vacant lot at Newkirk Avenue and East 8th Street into a community composting project and native plant garden.
