A Message From GROWNYC
Created in 1970, GrowNYC's mission is to help all New Yorkers by providing services and taking action to make NYC a truly livable city, one where every person can thrive. We want to level the playing field so we prioritize services to areas that need it most, ensuring all residents have the same access to amenities like fresh food, greenspace, and clean air, as wealthier neighborhoods.
Our programming includes: operating Greenmarkets and other food access points, building and maintaining community and school gardens, providing hands-on environmental education to learners of all ages, and conservation resources like textile recycling and compost.
