Our "official" season is over for the year, BUT, members will occasionally open the garden to the public on an "ad hoc" basis when they have the time to do so.
Due to the pandemic there are restrictions and new safety practices in accordance with GreenThumb/NYC Park’s Department guidelines:
Occupancy limit of 20 guests at a time. No large groups will be admitted. Everyone entering the garden must wear a mask or face covering, including gardeners. Groups and individuals must maintain 6 feet (2 meters) of distance between them. The Library will not be reopening at this time.
Enter at your own risk! We cannot guarantee that visitors will adhere to the safety practices. We ask our visitors to please respect the health of others by wearing a mask and observing all other garden rules. Wash your hands well when you return home.
Unfortunately, we cannot adequately sanitize all surfaces in the garden, such as benches, chairs and tables.
If you see people working in the garden during the week with the gates closed, please do not ask to be let in. Many of our members are vulnerable to COVID-19 and so enjoy the garden on weekdays.
