Growing Season 2024

Grow space to flourish for students across the city with Edible Schoolyard NYC!

There are so many ways to build space to grow for students with ESYNYC, from giving to our campaign, shopping our seasonal fundraising merchandise, and dining with our partners. Scroll down for all the ways you can get involved and check back often for new opportunities to grow with us all season long!


Your donation helps Edible Schoolyard NYC nurture, expand, and improve our beautiful growing spaces to ensure they continue to support the learning and engagement needs of our students and school communities!

Your support this growing season will help us to:

  • invest in new infrastructure to provide shade in our school garden at P.S. 109 in the Bronx
  • repair garden beds in our schoolyards across the city
  • grow more native plants and seasonal produce in school gardens
  • provide summer programming, including cooking and garden classes for students and open garden hours for families
  • distribute free produce to school communities
  • hire seasonal garden staff to nurture our gardens during peak season


Shop fresh threads featuring veggies from the ESYNYC gardens designed by artist Silja Forstein!  All proceeds help build space for students to grow across NYC.
