Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

The Herb Garden at BBG is a modern interpretation of a classic potager filled with vegetables, culinary herbs, espaliered fruit trees, brambles and berries, and medicinal plants. The garden is planted with sensitivity to the cultures and culinary traditions of Brooklyn's diverse neighborhoods, and also serves as a community classroom where neighbors can learn about urban vegetable gardening and sustainable food choices.

Designed to be both decorative and utilitarian, the project includes a fountain, a stone sink and table, and an observation deck that offers sweeping views of the entire garden. Dispersed throughout the garden are Seibert & Rice Alto Vases and Grey Cubes planted with banana trees, and New England flax.
