Get Involved

The Mechanical Gardens Bike Co-op home currently sits in the basement of St John’s the Evangelist Lutheran Church at 195 Maujer Street in Brooklyn. We hold Open Hours every Monday from 6-9pm and during the winter/early spring, we host work parties at the space and making connections with neighbors and community organizations. It’s a great time to get involved!
