Manhattan Land Trust

All of our gardens, sixteen in the Bronx and fourteen in Manhattan, were slated for sale by the city in 1999, which would have led to their certain demolition. Today these thirty vibrant, thriving gardens are manged by borough based land trusts; theBronx Land Trust (BLT) and the Manhattan Land Trust (MLT).

BLT and MLT are nonprofit organizations established by gardeners to support and sustain community gardening that share a common history and vision. We believe that green space enhances the quality of city life. Our collective mission is to preserve, improve, and promote community managed open spaces for the benefit of all.
