Brownstone Brooklyn features secret gardens tour

Enter the secret gardens of Brownstone BrooklynCity folk know how precious a postage stamp piece of green can be. Now you can catch a secret glimpse of what people are creating with their glorious green.

Brownstone Brooklyn Garden District presents its self-guided 13th Annual Garden Walk, June 6, 2010, from 11 am-5 pm.

Spend a Sunday afternoon being inspired by the creativity of this neighborhood's urban gardeners. Stops on the tour include single, double and triple-lot city refuges.

Pick up a self-guided map at the corner of Washington Avenue and Lafayette, just outside the entrance to the G train, and enter into a  green wonderland that cannot be seen from the street.

This year's stroll features 15 private gardens in the historic district of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

In addition to private gardens, many of which also feature the artwork of their creators folded into their greenery, the tour includes several vibrant community gardens, a newly planted garden entitled, Symbols, Parables and Healing, sponsored by BBGD in partnership with Teen Challenge, the drug recovery and prevention program at 444 Clinton Avenue, The Pratt sculpture Garden, green graffiti art installations and a Living-Couture Fashion Show in a neighborhood church.

All proceeds from the Garden Walk fund activities that support, encourage and facilitate local gardening, urban farming and environmental art.

Tickets are available in advance for $15 at:

and for $20 the day of the event.  Local ticket outlets will be announced shortly.
