Community gardens (that grow veggies) or allotments in Manhattan?

An ex-Londoner here, wondering if there's the equivalent of our allotments in NYC? These are patches of land that are leased to people to grow food. I'm not talking about the community gardens that are meant to be nice places for people to hang out; I'm talking, land whose leasing mandates the growing of fruit and veggies.

  1. As far as I know NY doesn't have allotments - only community gardens. But community gardens in which you can produce food, you can find your nearest community garden at this link:
    Good luck!
