New Membership Orientation April 10th and 11th

Orientation will take place next weekend April 10th and 11th. New members must attend orientation in order to compost. Please fill out the brochure on our join page if you have not already.

In the meantime, feel free to familiarize yourselves with the history of the garden, garden rules and proper composting ettiquette. As a reminder, we practice organic gardening: our gardeners do not use artificial fertilizers, chemical pesticides or genetically modified seeds. Members plan and work collaboratively and individually. There are a variety of ways you can help. We ask that if you harvest from the Garden you give your time to the Garden.

We are a community of volunteers. Activities and services for the public including school tours, garden mentoring and compost education are offered by volunteers. Anyone can become a member and non-members are welcome to visit and tour the garden during open hours and whenever the gate is open. If you would like to participate in any way, we welcome you year-round.

Monthly Meetings

The Garden of Union has open board meetings on the third Tuesday of each month at 7PM. They usually take place at Ozzie’s Coffee Shop, 249 5th Avenue in Park Slope. Please check ahead to confirm. You can attend meetings or submit your ideas in writing before the meeting. Our meetings are organized around principles of consensus and we make every effort to be sure that all voices are heard. Respect for others is required.

Thanks for your interest, and we’ll see you guys next weekend! Please email for any questions.
