The Lower East Side’s newest Community Garden, SVG was started by residents in early 2013 with a desire to protect local green spaces and create a place for the community to connect. The 2014 opening Saturday will give LES residents a taste of what’s to come this growing season, including regular garden open hours and events focused on sustainable living and educational opportunities.
