Greening Beyond the Garden
The Garden’s new and expanded outreach programs will help hundreds of thousands of community members through hands-on horticultural field training. These initiatives continue BBG’s commitment to extend beyond the borders of the Garden to create a greener Brooklyn.
A Closer Look at BBG's Work in the Community
Brooklyn Urban Gardener
The Brooklyn Urban Gardener Program (BUG) trains a local network of volunteer educator-advocates to become horticultural leaders able to organize and support independent greening projects in their own communities.
Community Garden Alliance
The Greenbridge Community Garden Alliance supports a growing number of local gardens with classes and training in urban gardening and conservation.
Street Tree Stewardship
As partners with the MillionTreesNYC Stewardship Corps, BBG works to ensure the long-term health of New York City’s street trees through public education in their care and protection.
