Access to Fresh Food Increases in Boro by Joe Anuta

There’s nothing like coming out of the cavernous Union Square subway station to a canopy of tree branches covered in spring blossoms, the tents of the Greenmarket visible just beyond.

And then there’s the smell…strawberries.

Now you can make one of these delicious strawberry recipes!

  • 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.

  • Education

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 66,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
