Greening Western Queens

7999772226_74be0cb48a_oThanks to support from North Star Fund’s Greening Western Queens Fund, GrowNYC built gardens at 5 schools in Western Queens in 2012: PS 122 and Young Women’s Leadership Academy in Astoria, IS 230 in Woodside, PS 76, and PS 199 in Long Island City.

GrowNYC also completed a 660 square foot addition to Long Island City Roots Community Garden, creating much needed gardening opportunities for local residents and neighborhood schools. Together, our new school gardens and the LIC Roots addition will reach 1,500 students and residents.
