GreenThumb is celebrating our 40th anniversary and as part of this special year, we are hosting Open Garden Day NYC on Saturday, July 14, 2018! Community Gardens across the city will open their gates on the 14th and offer free activities to the public from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. (rain or shine).
Join the community gardening movement and tour dozens of community gardens. Enjoy a day of free activities and / or host activities in your garden. Activities will differ from each garden and may include activities like: arts and crafts, a music performance, a ShapeUp class, a food demonstration or an opportunity to get your hands dirty and dig in the soil!
The open gardens represent some of the more than 550 community gardens overseen by GreenThumb, the largest community gardening program in the country. Gardens range from small community spaces meant for relaxation to large plazas and urban farms. More than 20,000 community gardeners volunteer their time to manage these vital open spaces.
