The space where Convent Garden currently resides was once an abandoned gas station turned empty lot for many years. On November 22, 1985, the lot was transferred to the Parks Department for development as a landscaped sitting area. Ms Davis, the current operator of the Garden, has over decades of hard work, transformed the Garden into a beacon of community gatherings and beauty in the area. Making it one of the best community Gardens in Harlem!
The walk way in the Garden has seen a lot of wear over the years because of the frequent traffic of young kids and disabled elderly. The conditions of the walk way have made it a hazard to both. We are installing new safer Pavers after removing the old worn ones.This will keep the Garden accessible for the many children and elderly who frequent it!
This will be the second phase of a 2 part project. We will be installing the pavers we removed on the13th.
This is a opportunity to help maintain one of the best kept secrets in Harlem. We hope to see you there!

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
