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.

On Monday, July 11, we launched the “Oh SNAP!” educational campaign with a live mural painting on a Greenmarket, Co. delivery truck. The “Oh SNAP!” campaign was designed to draw attention to the fact that GrowNYC’s network of Greenmarkets accept electronic benefits cards (EBT) and shoppers can use their SNAP benefits to purchase farm-fresh produce from the region’s mid-sized family farmers.

  • 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.
