Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) is a botanical garden in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City. Project Green Reach is a science-focused school outreach program which annually reaches nearly 2,500 students and teachers in public and nonpublic schools in underserved neighborhoods. GreenBridge, the community horticulture program of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, shares BBG's knowledge and resources with Brooklyn neighborhoods by offering residential and commercial gardening programs to block associations, community gardens, community centers, and other groups. I myself had visited this urban oasis many times as a child (mostly on school trips), but never fully appreciated it's beauty. 25 some odd years later I returned with my camera.
