Riverside Valley Community Garden, located uptown, near the intersection of Twelfth Avenue and 138th Street, is unique among the City's gardens in that it is located within a park—in this case, Riverside Park. Its 10 gardeners harvest lettuce, potatoes, eggplant, peaches, plums, pears and cherries, in addition to strawberries, raspberries and grapes. The site is overseen by Jenny Benitez, who has been tending this land for 25 years, first as a longtime volunteer and now as a staff member of the Riverside Park Fund.
