Garden, Build and Revitalize Shiloh Community Garden


Garden, Build and Revitalize Shiloh Community Garden

The Shiloh community garden for children needs assistance with its revitalization movement. Help with planting, clearing out debris, laying out soil, and other various upkeep.

The garden serves as a school learning garden for a public school in a low income area and teaches children about planting, growing, and caring for the soil, vegetables, and floral plants. The garden also teaches children and adults about nutrition, health awareness and how to save money by growing and consuming organic vegetables.

New Volunteer Friendly


GreenThumb provides programming and material support to over 500 community gardens in New York City and was initiated in response to the city’s financial crisis of the 1970s, which resulted in the abandonment of public and private land. The majority of GreenThumb gardens were derelict vacant lots renovated by volunteers and their gardens are located in all five boroughs in the city. Some are green spaces meant for relaxation and as a community meeting space, others are full–fledged farms, and many are a mix of the types.
