    Green Guerillas is partnering with six City Council Members to help community gardeners in their districts improve beautiful, historic community gardens. We are distributing soil, plants, and materials while helping gardeners make important repairs and organize community BBQ’s. These partnerships help strengthen the community garden movement in neighborhoods throughout our City.

    Green Guerillas spent the rainy spring distributing thousands of vegetable seedlings, herbs, and flowers to community gardeners in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Harlem, East Harlem and several neighborhoods in the Bronx. Community garden beds will soon be overflowing with tomatoes, basil, collards, peppers, and thyme.
