East Fourth Street
The dedicated local residents of the East Fourth Street Garden Association have tended this site, formerly known as the Windsor Terrace Kensington Veterans Memorial Garden, since they first organized it in 1979. The garden, incorporated in 1981, has come to serve a central role as a gathering place in this community. The East Fourth Street garden has funded its operations and special projects through dues collection, flea markets, and two Mollie Parnis Dress Up Your Neighborhood Awards.
"Local residents can recycle their kitchen scraps and organic waste at our composting site during our open hours. Gardeners combine sawdust, leaves and newspapers with the kitchen scraps to produce a high nutrient soil." PLEEASE E-MAIL PRIOR TO DROPPING OFF FOOD SCRAPS
