Manhattan Community Gardens

GrowNYC has built more than 125 new gardens, including GreenThumb community gardens; gardens in public housing developments, daycares, and senior centers; and our urban farm on Governors Island. We build about 10 new gardens a year and do renovation projects at an additional 25.
