GrowNYC, in partnership with the Castle Hill, Bushwick, and Melrose Houses, is building and cultivating green spaces at New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residences. We are creating hubs for community, safety, and inclusion. Gardens at NYCHA is operated with a community-first approach, focusing on the garden space and growing together using community input, events, virtual support, intergenerational activities, and access to educational materials.
We hold open volunteer hours each week:
Melrose Garden: Tuesdays, 11a-2p
Castle Hill Garden: Wednesdays, 1p-3p
Bushwick Garden: Thursdays, 11a-2p
