Although the garden is currently closed to the public, our garden team is safely planting the space with the aim to donate the harvests to New Yorkers who need it.

Support GrowNYC Education
Like so many others facing hard times, our  Education  funding has been deeply slashed for this year and next, threatening to curtail or close our programs entirely. If you or someone in your network is in a position to  contribute , or write  letters of support , we could absolutely use your support to keep our programming going and our incredible staff employed through this crisis, working on distance learning, curriculum, and beyond so we can pick up where we left off when it is safe to return to school. 

Now, more than ever, the importance of environmental and climate education for students has been made crystal clear. Help us continue to prepare the next generation of environmental stewards! 

GrowNYC food access sites are open!
