Eastwood Neighborhood Community Garden

March 10th, 2016

tomatoesWe are very excited to announce the launch of the Eastwood Neighborhood Community Garden. The garden is a new initiative of Eastwood Neighborhood Association for 2016.

Syracuse Grows, the Master Gardeners of Onondaga County, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and Tomorrow’s Neighborhoods Today have assisted in making what has been talked about for several years into a reality.

The garden will be located in Eastwood Heights Park, at the corner of Mosley Drive and Sunnycrest Road. It will feature 20 raised garden beds, nineteen designated for community use and one devoted to the students of Huntington School.

This is a great opportunity for Eastwood residents, especially those without a yard of their own, to grow their own healthy fruits and vegetables.

The growing season is fast approaching! Don’t wait to reserve one of the nineteen 3′ x 10′ spaces. They are sure to go quickly.

For more information, view and print the brochure.

Download the Community Garden Application here and submit it with your fee.
