Founded the same year as the New York City Marathon, GrowNYC is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve New York City's quality of life through environmental and food access programs that transform communities block by block and empower all New Yorkers to secure a clean and healthy environment for future generations. Reaching millions of New Yorkers every year, GrowNYC operates Greenmarkets, Fresh Food Box sites, and Farmstands; engages New Yorkers in zero waste education; builds and maintains green spaces; and engages people of all ages in hands-on education.

Check out our 2020 Annual Report to learn more about our impact over the last year, including distributing the equivalent of well over 1 million free meals to communities most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.


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