Project EverGreen completed their eighth GreenCare for Communities Project in New York City at the Poppa and Mamma Jones Historic Community Garden in Brooklyn.
Green spaces like Brooklyn’s Poppa and Momma Jones Historic Community Garden are critical to urban areas as they offset the heat island effect and provide the surrounding area with cleaner air through carbon sequestration.
The 6,623 sq. ft. green oasis has strong ties to this East New York neighborhood serving as a hub of connectivity for residents. The garden was found by Poppa Jones, a retired Southerner, with extensive knowledge of gardening and an even bigger heart.
Project EverGreen, in partnership with NYC Parks GreenThumb, and its dedicated volunteers delivered its eighth GreenCare for Communities project in the Big Apple.
