Karibu Community Garden
The Karibu Community Garden was established in 2010 on a former vacant lot. It is located on the northside of Syracuse. The garden is in its second growing season.
The Karibu Community Garden is currently growing: green squash, buttnernut squash, green peppers, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, melons, and lenga lenga (a kind of Amaranth known here as pigweed). Gardeners meet throughout the week to water and maintain the garden. Participants in the garden include Burundian and Congolese farmers from central Africa. There is also a family from Liberia and an American family that participate in the garden as well.
Participation in the garden is not limited and everyone is invited to get involved. For more information, please contact Rozlynn Jakes-Johnson (
