OASIS Community Garden Mapping Project

GrowNYC has just completed its latest inventory of community gardens for the interactive, searchable GIS map Open Accessible Space Information Systems (OASIS), available at oasisnyc.net.

OASIS is a cooperative effort of non-profit open space and environmental organizations, city, state and federal agencies, and private companies. The result is a powerful mapping tool that encompasses every lot on every block in New York City.

In addition to searching for and viewing information about the more than 600 community gardens in New York City, OASIS users can locate parks, schools, public housing, and district boundaries.

This week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York State's investment of $15 million in the construction of a new Greenmarket Regional Food Hub in the Bronx. The hub, which will be used by GrowNYC's Greenmarket Co. program, will be a state-of-the-art 120,000 square foot facility that will greatly increase New Yorkers' access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.

  • Greenmarket

    Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Recycle

    We blanket the five boroughs with resources like textile and food scrap collection, Stop 'N' Swaps, and free training to make waste reduction easy for all.

  • Garden

    We build and rejuvenate community & school gardens in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, & more.

  • Teach

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 60,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
