The Bear’s Garden

The best books start here.

Inspired by the true story of a community garden in Brooklyn, New York, The Bear’s Garden is a testament to how imagination and dedication can transform communities and create beauty for everyone in unexpected places.

 

A little girl sees an empty lot in a city and imagines what it can be.

She sees
a place to grow,
a place to play,
and a place to love.

 

With the help of her stuffed bear, the girl brings her community together to create a beautiful garden.
