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

In a moment where New Yorkers have turned to parks and gardening to ease the mental and emotional strain the Covid-19 pandemic has taken on residents, when the need for education surrounding nutrition and health couldn’t be more critical, the same nonprofits that make green space and nutrition education possible are in danger of going under, while vital city agencies like the New York City Parks Department’s GreenThumb program are facing severe budget cuts.

  • 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.
