The Fruity Pop Workshop

  • Bedford-Stuyvesant Community Garden 95 Malcolm X Blvd New York, NY, 10026 United States (map)

Join us for The Fruity Pop Workshop at The Bedford-Stuyvesant Community Garden.

Formerly the Lola Bryant Community Garden, the space had long been known for large quantities of fruits and vegetables cultivated there for many years by avid local gardeners, and shared with senior citizens and others in the community. In 2006, Dr. Leslie Dae Johnson, a forensic geneticist and New York Restoration Project patron, made a generous gift for the restoration and ongoing maintenance of the site.

The garden features raised planting beds for vegetables, herbs, and fruit trees; shallow terraces; a central lawn for social gatherings; an arbor made from metal scaffold tubing; a boardwalk constructed from recycled materials; picnic tables; a rainwater collection system sourced from the rooftop of a neighboring building, and more.

Free and open to the public, The Fruity Pop Workshop is geared toward ages 4–11. This program is organized in partnership with New York Restoration Project.

The Fruity Pop Workshop is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by  Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
