Founded in 2013

Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation contacted GrowNYC in May about breaking ground on the new "Golden Harvest Garden" behind Throop Court, a housing complex next to their planned food pantry/commercial kitchen space. GrowNYC had helped the organization create other gardens in the past, and we spearheaded the design process with input from the residents who would use the garden.

Corporate volunteers and community residents helped bring in new soil, build raised beds and plant tomatoes and peppers, as well as flowers the residents picked out to border the garden. Golden Harvest Client Choice Food Pantry opened its doors in June and utilizes the new garden’s harvest to get the healthiest, freshest food possible to clients.

As New York City and State responds to COVID-19, we want to update you on the steps we are taking--and recommending to you--to maintain GrowNYC Greenmarkets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites as vital community spaces in this time of uncertainty.

  • Food Access & Agriculture

    Our network of Greenmarket farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. 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.
