Children's Aid Society

Children's Aid Society Dunlevy Milbank
14-32 West 118th Street
Harlem, Manhattan
Founded in 1994

This play space was greened up with trees, shrubs and perennials thanks to the support of the Louis and Anne Abrons Foundation. New benches, picnic tables and a mural make this a cheerful spot for the children attending after school programs and summer camp.


For Black History Month, GrowNYC will highlight the invaluable contributions of black farmers, agriculturalists, chefs, thinkers, and food advocates.

  • 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.
