In this Wild TV segment, a garden in Brooklyn brings a community together. Community gardens become “green spaces” in the city. The garden in this segment is a sanctuary in the neighborhood that offers peace in the midst of the city’s hustle and bustle. The garden offers people a place to share their lives with their neighbors. Many vacant lots have the potential to be developed into green spaces where neighbors can grow vegetables, relax with their neighbors and escape the fast pace of the city life for a little while.
