Add greenery to your block, meet your neighbors and build community.
Sidewalk gardens beautify neighborhoods, create a natural habitat for butterflies, bees, and other pollinators, reduce storm water runoff, and increase the lifespan of adjacent trees.
WHO CAN GET A SIDEWALK GARDEN?
To be eligible for a sidewalk garden you must meet all of the following requirements:
Have concrete we can remove in one of our currently funded areas. Our funding allows us to plant gardens in newly opened garden basins, not existing ones.
FUF installs community-based sidewalk garden projects, transforming an entire block, meaning that we must have multiple properties on the block interested in participating. Having a block captain makes a big difference! Find out how to organize your block below.
We can only install a sidewalk garden where the distance from the curb to the building is at least 10 feet. This is to ensure that the garden will leave enough unobstructed sidewalk to meet permit and accessibility requirements.
We secure funding to subsidize most or all of the cost. In some cases, we’ll need you to cover permit fees and a small co-pay.
The gold-shaded zone in this map shows where we currently install sidewalk gardens.
Use the buttons below to request a sidewalk garden, help recruit neighbors to get sidewalk gardens, volunteer to plant sidewalk gardens (and trees) with us, or submit a co-payment for your sidewalk garden.
