Gardens for the City
NYRP helps transform a schoolyard.

Is there a community space in your neighborhood you’d like to see transformed? If so, apply for help from NYRP below. We provide support for project of various scales—from building a few vegetables beds to large-scale restoration work. 

Through the Gardens for the City program, NYRP helps communities transform public spaces in New York City. We lend materials, manpower and expertise in construction, horticulture, forestry and environmental education to help create community gardens and accessible landscape in under-resourced neighborhoods. 

See some of the community spaces we’ve helped transform over the years.
