Petitioning Mayor of NYC Bill de Blasio and 2 others

Save Harlem's Community Gardens


Community gardens are a cultural link that allow neighbors to come together in a public green space, to grow fresh food, to learn about healthy diets and lifestyle choices, where the old mingle with the young, or simply cool off in the shade on a hot summer day.

Central Harlem needs community gardens like Harlem Valley Garden, Electric Ladybug, Jackie Robinson, and Pleasant Village to continue to grow community, support health, collaboration, and neighborhood solidarity.

We admire Mayor de Blasio's progressive vision for our city and support the creation of affordable housing in all the boroughs. HPD has an opportunity to do exactly that on empty lots, while preserving the existing gardens.

Support the rich work that committed citizens do to improve our neighborhoods in Harlem and preserve our community gardens.
