Washington Heights Re-opens the Community Garden at Nia Point

April 16, 2014

Students and residents came together this past weekend to rework and reopen the community garden located near the Nia Point Apartments. The event had music, games, and a lot of hard work to get the garden cleared, tilled, and replanted for the season. Those in attendance planted corn, carrots, collards, flowers, and squash.

Residents hope that this reopening will attract more gardeners and create new ones. A special thank you to the Tabernacle Baptist Church for their tables, chairs, and electricity and a thank you to Shantae Jenkins, the manager of Nia Point for her support.
