Our Pacific Street Bear’s garden turned 30 this month.
It’s the Pacific Street Bears annual fundraiser for the garden! Come to the garden at Flatbush and Pacific from 10am on for a variety of yummy baked goods and plants for your Mom’s or your own garden or apartment. We’ll have a selection of gift plants, annuals, herbs, and select perennials dug from our garden, so come on out and support your local community garden! See you there!
Stop by and pitch in at our monthly workday at Pacific Bears Garden (any time between 10am and 2pm)…we’ll be doing spring clean-up chores and spreading some woodchips around on the paths. Or join us the 2nd Sunday of any month–we’ll be in the garden, working! New members always welcome!
We’ll be having a Spring Workday on Saturday March 27th from 10am until 3pm-ish. Come and help clean up the garden for Spring, or help us complete our pond restoration project. Come check out our new sign over the Flatbush gate! And definitely stop by if you’re interested in becoming a member this year. All are welcome! Pacific Street Bears Community Garden is at the corner of Pacific St and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.

Want to learn to prune and train roses and other shrubs?
How about learning to ID all sorts of plants, that are coming up now in the early spring in the perennial beds?
Then come to the Pacific Street Bears Garden this Sunday April 20th at 11am!
We’ll be doing these important spring pruning chores and along the way, learning a lot from each other. And we can ID and label plants, so the learning will be ongoing…
It will be fun! Come and spend an hour or two getting to know and how to care for the non-vegetable plants in the garden.
