2022 Mid-Year Impact Report

We’re working to ensure that all New Yorkers have clean, green open space.

Access to nature improves lives. For more than 25 years, we have lessened the disparity in park and garden access across New York City thanks to our community of supporters.

This year has been one of our busiest to date. Halfway through, we’ve already distributed and planted thousands of trees, shrubs, and perennials; picked up 35 tons of trash; built entirely new green spaces; and welcomed more than 600 volunteers into our parks and gardens.

Here’s a look at what we’ve done so far in 2022:
