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.

Greenmarket at the Oculus

It’s been a big week for GrowNYC’s Greenmarkets – the first day of our first indoor market was wonderful!

On Tuesday, January 15th, the Greenmarket at the Oculus moved indoors to the delight of downtown residents, tourists, shoppers, and commuters crossing through.

You can find Greenmarket producers including Samascott Orchards, Meredith’s Bread, Francesca’s Bakery, 1857 Spirits, Riverine Ranch, and (soon) Roxbury Mountain Maple inside the Oculus every Tuesday this season.

Come on by!
