Our network of Greenmarket farmers markets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites, coupled with GrowNYC Wholesale, ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food!
We provide food scrap drop-offs, clothing collections, Stop 'N' Swap® community reuse events, and outreach and education to increase participation in the city’s zero waste programs and help conserve natural resources.
We build and rejuvenate community and urban farms in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, and more.
We foster future environmental stewards by providing 66,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
Every day, GrowNYC employees see first-hand the impact they have on the environment and the lives of New Yorkers in all five boroughs. Join our team!
Every year, GrowNYC holds our Annual Spring Plant Sale in order to provide community groups with affordable perennial and annual flowering plants, herbs, ground covers, and vegetables grown by Greenmarket farmers and sold in wholesale quantities.
Our food system is broken. 1.4 million New Yorkers are food insecure - a number that will only continue to increase as the effects of climate change destroy crops and farmland in the Northeast.
1 in every 16 New Yorkers lives in a New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) development, few of which provide access to any sort of community green space. Home to more than 4,500 New Yorkers, the NYCHA Houses at Castle Hill in the Bronx were no exception.
