BENEFITING: Council on the Environment, Inc.
GrowNYC (dba name) is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. For more than 40 years GrowNYC has transformed communities and empowered New Yorkers to make our city, clean, green and sustainable through our Greenmarket, Recycling, Gardening and Teaching Programs.
Currently, our multi-programmatic organization has minimal physical space where we can showcase the work that we do, hold special events, offer workshops, host seminars, or provide education. Furthermore, our organization is being relocated in the next year, and we are going to lose what little space we do have. The Farmhouse would be a permanent site for us to host programs, as well as a public portal to the services we provide and to the exploration of food and the environment through horticulture, arts, recycling, cooking, and community education.
