GrowNYC Survey Shows Evidence for Optimism

 - Jan 11, 2011
A recent survey conducted by GrowNYC has turned up some positive dirt on the success of community gardens in the Big Apple.

Over 80 percent of the gardens surveyed confirmed that they provide food to their local community, while 65 percent were found to have comprehensive composting practices. In addition to this, the GrowNYC survey also found that nearly half of all the gardens they contacted were partnered with one or more local schools in order to offer comprehensive education programs to young students.

Ultimately the GrowNYC survey results are a resounding win for green-thinking in one of the densest urban populations in North America.
