Founded in 2011, Myrtle Village Green (MVG) is the result of ten years of local advocates fighting for a community green space that creates the kinds of future-minded citizens who can spread positive examples of green-living practices. MVG is the only community garden, outdoor learning space, and secular gathering place of its kind in this part of Bed-Stuy. It feeds the neighborhood with 1.3 tons of affordable, nutrient-dense food per season, and more than 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables from around the world.
T-shirts, water bottles and snacks will be provided.
