The Garden is growing...

We are excited to announce the new organization Elizabeth Street Garden Inc!

Will this change anything?

Not at all!  Elizabeth Street Garden will still maintain it's public accessibility and offer free programming and events for everyone!

While some of our board members have changed, we have the same volunteer base!

About Us

Elizabeth Street Garden Inc (ESG) is an independent, community lead, 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization. We are committed to exploring every option available to preserve and protect the Garden and save our much needed Community green space in Little Italy. United by the desire to change the way we save the garden, former members of the Garden’s previous organization, active garden volunteers, and advocates for community gardens came together and formed ESG.
