Greenmarket Youth Education

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic and with social distancing measures still in place at our Greenmarkets, for the near future, we will not be hosting any onsite school tours. We will, however, be hosting Youth Education programming remotely and sharing resources on GrowNYC's Distance Learning Page

If you are a teacher or parent interested in bringing your child or a small group to the Greenmarket, here are a few useful resources:

If there are changes to GrowNYC programming or operations due to inclement weather this blog post will be information central for up-to-the-minute schedule changes.

  • Food Access & Agriculture

    Our network of Greenmarket farmers markets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites, coupled with GrowNYC Wholesale, 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.
