About the Garden

The Pioneer Works Garden features a series of spring ephemerals, a burgeoning stand of fruit-bearing trees, annual and perennial vegetables, and many medicinal and culinary herbs. The edges and low-lying areas of the landscape have been cultivated as a salt barrier and sponge, acknowledging the gardenā€™s proximity to the New York Harbor as well as imminent sea-level riseā€”during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the garden was inundated with over five feet of water. The space is also home to site-specific plant-based installations, as well as a ceramics studio, and a recording studio that hosts a rotating music residency.
