Greenmarket Youth Education

Greenmarket K-12 school tours are paused this fall. However, you can take tour students on a self-guided tour at any of our weekday Greenmarkets or you can watch a virtual tour of the Union Square Greenmarket in your classroom. You may also check out GrowNYC’s Distance Learning Page for more resources you can use with your students.

If you are a teacher or family interested in introducing your students or children to regional agriculture and sustainable farming, here are a few other useful resources:

GrowNYC is happy to announce a free training available to nonprofit organizations and community groups interested in operating a food box or farm stand in their neighborhood. Attend our Information Session on January 10 to learn more.

    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.

  • Zero Waste

    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.

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