                                                     All People's Garden, 1979                                                                      Governors Island Teaching Garden, 2017

 

We are thrilled to announce that this fall GrowNYC will build our 100th new community garden!

We opened our first garden, All People’s Garden, in the East Village in 1979. It takes a village: over the years we've worked with community residents, neighborhood associations, corporate volunteers, community partners, and city agencies. In addition to the 100 community gardens GrowNYC has built from the ground up, we’ve also lent our support to hundreds more.

To celebrate this milestone, we will be sharing photos and stories from GrowNYC gardening history every week until the 100th garden opening in October!

Though we have built 100 community gardens since 1975, 43 of those gardens have been built since 2013, thanks in part to a growing recognition of their importance for the health of NYC residents like you!

This story is far from over and WE NEED YOUR HELP TO KEEP THIS INCREDIBLE MOMENTUM GOING!!

GrowNYC's Response to the US' Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord

Now what? We keep on moving forward.

Why bother? Because each person’s actions, decisions and behavior still matter.

Is this it? Not yet.

People are fired up, mobilized, taking action.

Here at GrowNYC we continue to be astounded by the power of the people who take action to stop climate change and make a difference for all of us.

We see it in the faces of NYC community gardeners, in the joyful first harvest of our youngest school gardeners, in the sweat and determination of regional farmers.

The friendly smiles at Greenmarkets, Youthmarkets and Fresh Food Box sites.

The people who ride their bikes to drop off food scraps.

We see it in you.

We stand together – all of us.
