Clay Avenue Community Garden

Founded in 1986 by the Claremont Homeowners Tenants Civic Improvement Association, this well tended garden grows produce ranging from strawberries to callalloo, a vegetable native to the Caribbean. The garden features a beautiful peach tree along with rose bushes, daffodils and tulips. NYRP improvements include the installation of a rainwater collection system along with raised vegetable beds and an herb garden. Community events held at Clay Avenue include gardening workshops, picnics and block parties.

At nearly 4,500 square-feet, the garden provides an important green space for Butler and Webster Houses – two New York City Housing Authority properties located across the street. In addition, the garden serves three schools in the neighborhood by engaging students to learn about the outdoors.
