If you’ve been dreaming about a community garden for your neighborhood, don’t miss your chance to have the New York Restoration Project  boost your project with building materials, construction help and educational support. NYRP is looking for worthy applicants wanting to transform existing open areas into gardens or green spaces for their Gardens for the City program, and the deadline is today. If you want to apply, check out the downloadable application here. 
NYRP is hoping to find proposals in the five boroughs that will engage community members and include plans for maintenance and long-term upkeep. Last year’s winning projects included the Halsey Community Garden  in Bed-Stuy, the Jackie Robinson Community Garden  in East Harlem, public school 180 in Harlem, the People’s Garden in East New York, Brooklyn, and the Robert Fulton Terrace in Morrisania, Bronx. You can view each garden’s transformation on the NYRP Facebook page .
If you can’t make today’s deadline, don’t worry. There are many other community organizations which offer year-round support for greening and block beautification including: GrowNYC , Citizens , IOBY , CBU , Build It Green! NYC , and 596 Acres . Good luck!
