Corporate Volunteering with GrowNYC

GrowNYC works with corporate groups of any size on both indoor and outdoor volunteer projects all across New York City.

Building urban farms, indoor seed packing, planting in community gardens, educational events, and starting new school gardens are all projects that GrowNYC's corporate volunteers have tackled.

In 2023, GrowNYC's corporate volunteer program:

  • Worked with more than 3,000 volunteers, including groups of up to 300.
  • Put in 12,000 hours at 25 different gardens across the city.
  • Helped build 7 new community gardens, adding 46,000 square feet of new green space for growing food, community meetings, and youth development.

Our staff will work with your company to design a volunteer day that is engaging, educational, and fun!
