Every year, GrowNYC’s Open Space Greening Program holds a Spring Plant Sale in order to provide community groups with perennial and annual flowering plants, herbs, ground covers, and vegetables from Greenmarket farmers at wholesale prices. Plants are for neighborhood open space projects only (e.g. community gardens, schools, block associations, churches, etc.) and may be sold to raise other funds.
New this year: More annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables, and heirlooms.
Your plant sale order form is attached, along with the description sheet for all plant material listed. Please submit your completed order form and return it with your payment. This form must reach our offices by 5 PM, Monday, April 9th.
Note: If you are faxing your order, please call our office for confirmation at 212-788-7935.
