GreenThumb Gardeners Handbook 2019

The 2019 edition of the GreenThumb Gardeners' Handbook answers frequently asked questions regarding a variety of topics, including accepting donations, selling garden produce, tree pruning, and garden bylaws. The handbook is a one-stop-shop for all GreenThumb, NYC Parks, NYC, and NY State policies and laws that govern community gardens in the GreenThumb network.

GreenThumb is grateful for the immense time and effort community gardeners put into making these spaces beautiful, productive, and community-centric and who have helped inform policies, guidelines and protocols included in this handbook. In an effort to create and sustain these thriving public spaces, this handbook is available to all garden members and members of the public in digital form on our website.
