Starting in 1988, when a handful of determined neighbors began to clean up a garbage-strewn abandoned lot, 6/15 Green has blossomed into a thriving community haven with over 100 active members and thousands of visitors each year. The garden serves the community by hosting educational and cultural events, including a unique solar-power project that drives our pond’s waterfall and arbor’s lighting and by running an intense composting program. Above all, the garden provides an opportunity to grow veggies and flowers or relax in this lush green oasis amid the hubbub of our busy urban life.
