the project

Help facilitate increased use of already existing open space

the steps

We need funding to cover materials cost. Once in place the structure will be built by GrowNYC staff and with 15 teen interns from our summer program. A landscape architect has already completed a blue print and material costsfor the structure. GrowNYC staff has necessary carpentry skills and ability to work with teenagers on construction projects.

why we're doing it

The JDD community garden in the South Bronx needs a new shade structure -- the exisitng one is in need of repair. Building a new structure will allow the Learn It, Grow It, Eat It program of GrowNYC to increase its use of the garden as an outdoor classroom for neighboring schools. The community will use the structure to hold more neighborhood events that will bring more people into the garden
