Because of sudden cuts in our funding from the city, as the city fights COVID-19, our spring plant & supply giveaways are extremely limited this year. Other non-profits who assist community gardeners are also experiencing a diminished capacity to offer support this spring. This leaves community gardeners and the communities they serve vastly under-resourced during a time when the need to access and grow healthy foods for our communities is greater than ever.
Resource Share: If you have food-growing resources to share or if you need food growing resources, please let us know. We will do our best to match those in need with those who can give. This is the time for solidarity. Together we can create essential access to fresh foods in our neighborhoods.
Discussion & Information Forum: Visit our new forum for discussion and information about gardening during COVID-19.
Join us for an idea-driven workshop, centered on community organizing and urban green spaces. Together, we will generate diverse ideas and a roadmap for meaningful action for Green Guerillas during 2020 and beyond.
Please RSVP here.
Green Guerillas is partnering with six City Council Members to help community gardeners in their districts improve beautiful, historic community gardens. We are distributing soil, plants, and materials while helping gardeners make important repairs and organize community BBQ’s. These partnerships help strengthen the community garden movement in neighborhoods throughout our City.
Green Guerillas spent the rainy spring distributing thousands of vegetable seedlings, herbs, and flowers to community gardeners in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Harlem, East Harlem and several neighborhoods in the Bronx. Community garden beds will soon be overflowing with tomatoes, basil, collards, peppers, and thyme.
Green Guerillas partnered with American Eagle Outfitters to help the gardeners at the big, beautiful Phoenix Community Garden spruce up their the garden this spring. A group of AEO employees planted up vertical planters, spread wood chips, and helped get the garden ready for the growing season.
