I have worked with GrowNYC on public and in-house events over the past 2 years and have seen firsthand how committed they are to the work they do. I admire the high level of integrity and dedication that exists among the staff.
As New Yorkers we are all effected by GrowNYC's efforts, from the incredible Greenmarkets that encourage local, seasonal eating to recycling efforts in schools that educate future generations to work in community gardens that bring neighborhoods together, GrowNYC's efforts are necessary and making a big difference in our future as a city. I am honored to be a small part of such an important organization.

As an employee of GreenThumb, the division of NYC Parks and Recreation responsible for providing technical and material support to school and community gardens, GrowNYC has been a vital partner in helping meet the challenges of garden projects, and particularly through their role with Grow to Learn NYC. Across its various programs, GrowNYC has proven itself to be a reliable and effective leader in the greening of New York City.
