Revitalizing Public Spaces

National Volunteer Week Public Space Image

Nearly 10% of our programs give outdoor lovers the opportunity to take their passion for nature to greener and greater heights by revitalizing and beautifying public green spaces, such as parks and gardens. We work side by side with the NYC Parks Department and other community partners to pick up debris, prune trees, plant flowers, remove weeds and invasive species, build garden beds, and more.

If you believe that...

  • Preserving and beautifying NYC’s parks and gardens is a vital goal, we offer a variety of environmental revitalization projects in locations around the city.

  • Composting is a great way to reduce landfill waste, enrich our local soil, and reduce carbon emissions, get your hands dirty with one of our compost partners.
