Growing Green Schools

Celebrating Earth Month with ESYNYC
Growing Green Schools

At ESYNYC, we know that students today will lead the health of our schools, communities, and planet tomorrow. We are here to encourage and empower students and school communities to build, maintain, and advocate for green schools. At green schools, we increase access to more healthy, plant-forward foods; invest in and nurtures green, outdoor spaces; and act in service of food and environmental justice – ultimately, leading to healthier, stronger, and greener school communities across NYC.
