GreenThumb help isn't just a load of compost -- it can also provide the shovels to spread it with-- along with other valuable support for school gardens like technical assistance and materials such as lumber, shovels, and yes, compost.
Established in 1978, GreenThumb is a division of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation dedicated to supporting community gardens, including school gardens. It remains the nation's largest urban gardening program, assisting over 600 gardens and nearly 20,000 garden members throughout New York City.
If your school meets GreenThumb’s eligibility requirements, you may be able to receive technical assistance, materials, and educational workshops provided by GreenThumb.
