Brooklyn Urban Gardeners Grow

February 2011

We are pleased to announce that the inaugural Brooklyn Urban Gardener (BUG) class has completed its eight-week course, to much acclaim throughout the borough. The 15 participants, representing 14 Brooklyn neighborhoods as well as a diverse spectrum of ages, professional backgrounds, ethnicities, and interests, were grouped into three teams. Each team was paired with a local organization and assigned a project that focused on a community greening initiative. What differentiates BUG from other master gardener programs is the emphasis on providing community organizational tools specific to urban gardening.
