Educating the Next Generation of Open Space Stewards

November 14, 2017

This fall we're working with educators in every borough, teaching public school students how to plant and tend daffodils. Altogether we'll work with 50 students, many of whom will go on to be a part the next generation of open space stewards and advocates. We're also working with over 50 volunteers from NYC & Co. and Con Edison to bring daffodils to public spaces around the city.

We work to ensure that all young people in NYC get to experience the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes from beautifying their community. That's why every school we work with has a high percentage of students who qualify for free lunch. Beautiful open space should be accessible to everyone regardless of income. 

We're also working with volunteers from Con Edison and NYC & Company to plant daffodils and clean up open spaces across the city. If your corporate group would like to get involved, contact Michelle Velez, Development Manager at, or at 212-838-9410 ex 315.
