About Us

Elizabeth Street Garden (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.
