Volunteers help establish the Esty Street Garden in Ithaca.

Solidarity Gardens

Solidarity Gardens are gardens in public spaces where vegetables will be grown in raised beds for communal harvest. We are targeting housing sites and public spaces in the City of Ithaca where we will establish raised bed gardens and provide seeds and transplants. Volunteers will help residents learn to garden and share recipes for cooking the harvest. Partner sites include:

  • Conley Permaculture Park
  • Esty Street Neighborhood Garden
  • Floral Avenue Community Garden
  • Ithaca Community Gardens
  • Ithaca Children's Garden
  • Titus Towers

Learn more about this project on FACEBOOK or VOLUNTEER to work at a specific site.
