Mark your calendars for the fifth annual GreenThumb Open Garden Day NYC on Saturday, June 4th and June 5th (rain or shine) at community gardens across the city! For more information, including a map of all the gardens, activities being offered, and times, please visit the Open Garden Day NYC events page.
We are still seeking community gardens across the city to participate in this special day and to schedule a free activity or event for the public to enjoy, along with some of our city's finest community garden spaces. Thank you to the 100+ garden groups who have signed up already!
Activities can include arts and crafts, music performances, volunteer projects, tours, or feel free to suggest your own activity. NYC Parks GreenThumb has compiled some ideas for events and activities that community garden groups can organize to celebrate Open Garden Day NYC (also available to download at the link below). Please note that all groups should follow the health and safety protocols found on our website. Open Garden Day event submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis until Friday, May 27, 2022.
Please note, garden groups are NOT required to fill out a separate Event Request Form if you are using the Open Garden Day NYC form to submit an event for Open Garden Day NYC.
If you have any questions, please contact Twywana Bush, Project Coordinator at Twywana.Bush@parks.nyc.gov.
