Open Garden Day NYC - June 20

We are seeking community gardens across the city to participate in the third annual Open Garden Day NYC by opening their gates to the public from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 (rain or shine). Your garden group can join by hosting a free activity or event for the public to enjoy. Activities can include arts and crafts, music performances, composting, planting, a food demonstration, or feel free to suggest your own activity. Last year, over 100 gardens participated, with activities such as making medicinal herbal products, holding a yoga class, learning about gardening, and hosting musical performances.

If you would like to participate, please fill out the form at by Friday, April 24. Participating gardens will receive support from NYC Parks GreenThumb with marketing and publicity.
