Remembering GrowNYC's Founder, Marian S. Heiskell

March 15, 2019

It is with a heavy heart that we write to report the passing of our beloved founder and honorary chairwoman Marian S. Heiskell. Her vision of, and passion for, a cleaner greener NYC led to the creation of our organization in the Mayor’s Office in 1970. She tirelessly worked to raise funds and awareness in service of more green space, recycling, education, and Greenmarkets. Her wisdom, strength, generosity, and especially her kindness will be missed greatly. Her legacy lives on in the countless lives touched by all the great work she enabled.   

Truly hers was a life well lived because it was in service of others.

You can read more about Marian Heiskell's accomplishments and legacy in her New York Times obituary.

GrowNYC's 2019 Plant Sale is Here!

March 10, 2019
Posted in Community Gardens

The 2019 Annual Spring Plant Sale is made possible by the generous support of Wells Fargo.

GrowNYC's Annual Spring Plant Sale, which we've been running since 1986, is a great way for community gardens, schools, block associations, churches, and any other group greening project to purchase vegetable, herb, and flowering plants grown by local Greenmarket farmers at wholesale prices.

Our Plant Sale takes place over 5 days in late April/early May - 3 days at Hattie Carthan Community Garden in Brooklyn and 2 days at College Avenue Garden in the Bronx.  The sale is pre-order only, and orders must be in by April 12th.

International Women's Day

March 8, 2019

People throughout the world are celebrating advancements in gender equality today, International Women’s Day.

At GrowNYC, we are thrilled to report that, as of last November, 54% of businesses that sell at our Greenmarkets are either owned or co-owned by women (nationally, women comprise 30% of farmers in America).

Check out this slideshow of female Greenmarket Farmers. You go, girl – today and every day!
