GrowNYC's Grow Truck program traverses all five boroughs to lend and deliver garden tools, plants, and horticultural advice to community greening efforts. Schools, community gardens, block associations, and any new garden efforts are eligible to borrow tools. The Grow Truck loans out both specialized and common manual garden tools, and may also be able to deliver plants, soil, or other garden supplies you have arranged to be donated.
Please note that schools are eligible to request tool loans through the Grow Truck, but deliveries cannot be guaranteed for schools at this time. Due to limited staffing, requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis, and filled as staffing allows. Please submit requests as early as possible, and our staff will be in contact as soon as possible.
To obtain other Grow Truck services and/or ask questions about tool loans, call 212-788-7935 or email us.
