A newly renovated community garden has officially opened in the Bronx. Fannie’s Garden at Paradise on Earth, a venture of the New York Restoration Project (NYRP), received a dramatic upgrade with sustainable features like permeable pavement, a rain garden, and a shade structure designed to support solar panels. The 13,000-square foot-garden offers space for urban residents to escape the city, get their hands dirty in 24 garden beds, and enjoy the colors of native plants.
