Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.
GrowNYC has many opportunities for individuals to dig in and improve New York City's environment block by block and community by community. Individuals must be 18 years of age or older and attend an orientation before volunteering. Orientations are held monthly and there are separate orientations for GrowNYC's Greenmarket and Zero Waste (recycling) programs. You are required to attend an orientation in order volunteer with each respective program.
Greenmarket volunteers help with at-market promotions like cooking demonstrations, farmer support, and community outreach; Fresh Food Box distribution; Youthmarket cooking demos and more!
Recycling volunteers help keep food waste out of landfills, facilitate community reuse events, conduct interactive recycling demonstrations, and more.
