Give a Gift

Make a contribution for you or a loved one to support Greenmarkets, hands-on education, recycling, farming, food, gardens, and more. This is one of the simplest and most effective ways to give.

 

In-Kind

GrowNYC welcomes donations of products or services that help us allocate more funds toward our mission to create a healthier, more sustainable NYC. We often need: outdoor kitchen equipment, printing and mail services, photography, and outdoor gear for our staff working in community gardens and out at Greenmarket.

Give Back

GrowNYC has many opportunities for volunteers to dig in and improve New York City's environment block by block and community by community.

Corporate Volunteer

Corporate volunteer groups of any size can work on outdoor projects across New York City. Volunteers from your company can plant and clean up community and school gardens, organize and run cultural events, plant trees, or provide recycling outreach and assistance at major events and street fairs.

Help Greenmarket go plastic-free by bringing your own bags while shopping in the markets. Made from petroleum, plastic bags are contributing to enivonmental degradation around the world, clogging our oceans, and are an enormous waste of money. Pledge to bring your bags when shopping at Greenmarkets and help us go plastic-free!
