Bronx Green-Up Partnerships
Bronx Land Trust
The Bronx Land Trust, a nonprofit organization established by gardeners to support and sustain community gardening, manages 16 gardens in the Bronx. In addition to providing services to these gardens, Bronx Green-Up has partnered in major garden redesign projects for these gardens.
Bronx Green-Up is a partner of the Butterfly Project, a grassroots, volunteer-led organization of people from around New York City with a common goal—to encourage and assist in the planting of native plants in gardens and other public areas in order to create and strengthen habitat for native pollinators.
GreenThumb, the community gardening program of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, provides materials, technical assistance, and educational workshops. Bronx Green-Up partners with GreenThumb in leading several workshops a year, while GreenThumb provides important material resources to registered community and school gardeners.
International Rescue Committee
Bronx Green-Up is partnering with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to build the New Roots Community Farm. The IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in more than 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The City Farms Program trains, connects, and empowers New York City community gardeners to spread knowledge about growing, selling, and giving away food in their neighborhoods. Bronx Green-Up and Just Food partner to conduct educational workshops and demonstrations about growing and eating healthy fruits and vegetables in the communities where gardens are located. In 2013 Bronx Green-Up is collaborating with Just Food to offer the Grow More Vegetables course in Manhattan.
Queens Botanical Garden
Queens Botanical Garden is an urban oasis where people, plants, and cultures are celebrated through inspiring gardens, innovative educational programs, and demonstrations of environmental stewardship. In 2013 Bronx Green-Up is collaborating with Queens Botanical Garden to offer the Grow More Vegetables course in Queens.
