Rating: 4 stars  

I've been a volunteer with GROWNYC for almost 3 years. Their recycling and greening initiatives are helping keep NYC green, which as a native New Yorker is important to me. I think their programs really help the community and I've seen first hand what a difference planing a community garden can make. I'm grateful that they've forged the way for such recycling initiatives like textile recycling at the green market. I think they're really making a difference in NYC.
