GrowNYC's has built more than 150 community gardens and urban farms throughout the five boroughs, adding more than 1 million square of green space to New York City. These gardens are built on city-owned vacant lots, within public housing developments, on empty space at churches, daycares, and seniors centers, and anywhere else that a publicly accessible community garden will flourish. We've also completed hundreds of renovation projects, built green infrastructure elements like rainwater harvesting systems and bioswales, and much more.
Through our Community Garden Assistance Request Form, garden groups can apply to have GrowNYC build a new garden or renovate an existing garden. GrowNYC will engage selected groups in a participatory design process and provide labor and materials for your planting and garden infrastructure projects.
We accept submsisions on a rolling basis.
