Back to the Garden: NYCCGC Fundraiser

Founded in 1996, New York City Community Garden Coalition's mission is to promote the preservation, creation, and empowerment of community gardens through education, advocacy, and grassroots organizing.

We are excited to announce our June 10th fundraiser will be held at Judson Memorial Church from 6:30 to 9 pm. We will be celebrating the vitality of community gardens and the long-awaited planting season, and we will present awards to visionary borough gardeners and activists.

Tickets start at $50 and can be found at

Honoree: Speaker of New York City Council, Melissa Mark-Viverito
Youth Activist Awardees: Kristina Erskine, Iyeshima Harris, and Benia Darius from Bushwick Campus Farm & EcoStation:NY
Musical Guests: Diana Jones, Rashad Brown 

NYCCGC also plans to give our first-ever activist award to an honoree that best exemplifies the unrelenting spirit of Pete Seeger, who so graciously played an integral part in our Mayoral Forum last year, leading the assembled forum in an emphatic rendition of “If I Had a Hammer.”

    Helen Slottje has just been announced as keynote speaker for this event! Because of her legal work, over 170 towns and cities across NY have banned fracking. We're really excited to bring her to NYC!
