Part of the way we make the Clinton Community Garden more welcoming to our 
over 5,000 non-gardening key-holders and neighborhood visitors is our "cut a few 
sprigs for dinner," herb garden, maintained by Clinton Community Garden 
gardener volunteers, Annie Chadwick and Faser Hardin. The rules to our herb garden 
are, "please feel free to cut a few sprigs of our herbs for dinner, but don't 
yank out the whole plant!"  

We also have an apple tree, in our front garden as well as a beehive - who's 
honey we sell after our harvest as a fundraiser. The hive does wonders for our 
plantings, and honey, "harvested eight blocks away from where the ball is 
dropped in Times Square on New Year's Eve," has a special cachet for neighborhood 
dwellers that goes beyond its intrinsic value - the natural happens here in 
the midst of concrete caverns.
