Bed-Stuy Create & Connect Fund Recipient
Garden in the Wake is a community garden in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn centering Black queer, trans, non-binary, genderqueer, and agender folks who are looking to grow and cultivate food and medicinal herbs. We hope that this space will be multipurpose in its function, with the larger aim to create and strengthen support networks for these communities, especially those who are disproportionately impacted by food apartheid and disabled. The garden space will be accessible, secure, and focus on the needs of Black queer and trans folks who are seeking a haven, for community building, skill sharing, art making, food cultivation, medicine making, holistic wellness practices such as tincture making, and political education grounded in a Black radical tradition.
