For the first time in GreenThumb’s history, we have shifted our traditional plant distribution to a contactless plant and seed delivery to adhere to COVID-19 social distancing measures. We are thrilled to provide you with a broad selection of top quality seeds and seedlings of annual flowers, herbs, perennials, and vegetables. We want to thank all of the different teams, greening partners, and vendors that worked together to make this contactless delivery possible.
Originally intended for different events, the seed packets made their way to the plant delivery thanks to the generous contribution of Brooklyn Botanic Garden, as well as logistical support from Reclaim Seed NYC. Included in this plant delivery are seeds originally purchased for Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Making Brooklyn Bloom annual conference and for the GreenThumb GrowTogether Seed Exchange.
Our seedlings came from an array of local vendors, who came through for us under difficult circumstances and an unusually cold spring. For more information on the native plants you received, which came from the Greenbelt Native Plant Center, watch Cindy Goulder’s webinar video posted at

Huge gratitude to all of YOU community gardeners for all the work you are doing to keep community gardens green and thriving! If you have any additional questions about these plants, we will be having webinars throughout the season. Please visit for the webinar schedule and for links to past webinar recordings.
