The Crease Street Garden was born 10 years ago when neighbors came together to clear an overgrown, abandoned lot that was inviting crime. It has since grown into a vital community garden. Open to all, it is now public space where we join together and continue to build and nurture our neighborhood.
As Fishtown is rapidly being developed, the garden in now threatened. Our only hope to keep this precious gem as permanent green space is to purchase it. To achieve this, we have joined in partnership with the Neighborhood Gardens Trust, a recognized leader in Urban Land Preservation. NGT will be supporting us in securing government grants for the bulk of the purchase price, but we still need to raise about $120,000 by the end of 2021.
