Garden Survey

2010 Citywide Community Garden Survey
The 2009/2010 survey of community gardens was designed to update GrowNYC’s central database of community gardens, update OASIS, and create new datasets around issues like food production and partnerships with schools.

Survey design, implementation, and analysis were completed by Mara Gittleman, 2009 Compton Mentor Fellow, funded by the Compton Foundation, with GrowNYC's Lenny Librizzi, GrowNYC. Responses used in this report were collected from August 2009 to July 2010, with a total of 223 survey respondents.

City Lot Fact Sheets

As New York City and State responds to COVID-19, we want to update you on the steps we are taking--and recommending to you--to maintain GrowNYC Greenmarkets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites as vital community spaces in this time of uncertainty.

  • Food Access & Agriculture

    Our network of Greenmarket farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Conservation

    We provide food scrap drop-offs, clothing collections, Stop 'N' Swap® community reuse events, and zero waste trainings to make resource conservation easy for all.

  • Green Space

    We build and rejuvenate community & school gardens in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, & more.

  • Education

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 66,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
