GrowNYC recently formed a partnership with Wagner Middle School in Manhattan called Healthy Kids, Healthy Schools, funded by NYC Council Member Jessica Lappin. Under one roof, we are providing support from five GrowNYC programs: Learn It Grow It Eat It, Grow to Learn NYC, Greenmarket Youth Education, Recycling Champions and Environmental Education.
For an entire year, GrowNYC staff will educate young people about leading lives that improve their personal health and that of the environment around them--so that eating, growing, learning, and going green becomes second nature.
GrowNYC's Annual Spring Plant Sale provides community groups with vegetable, herb, annual, and perennial plant starts grown by Greenmarkets farmers and available for a wholesale price. Over 500 community gardens, schools, block associations, and more participated last year.
