Greenmarket Youth Education

Greenmarket School tours are back! However, if you are not able to make out to the Greenmarket, you can take a virtual tour of the GrowNYC Union Square Greenmarket

If you are a teacher or parent interested in bringing your child or a small group to the Greenmarket, here are a few useful resources:

Your locally grown Christmas trees, wreaths, and boughs will stay fresher longer and smell amazing.

  • Food Access & Agriculture

    Our network of Greenmarket farmers markets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites, coupled with GrowNYC Wholesale, 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.
