The Garden Belongs
to Everyone

Whether you visit once a week or once a year, the Garden will be richer for your participation. There are many ways you can help it flourish:

  • Roll up your sleeves and join us as a new volunteer.
    (SignUpGenius link for current volunteers.)
  • Tell your friends about the Garden, and encourage them to visit.
  • If you own a business in the neighborhood, consider sponsoring an event.
  • If you are interested in making a tax-deductible contribution, please use our sidebar Donate button, or send a check made out to Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden Inc.* to Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden, 235 Elizabeth St., Ste. 23, New York, NY 10012.
  • Most of all, remember to stop by often, and enjoy the Garden!

Do You Have a Programming Idea?

Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden volunteers are hard at work planning gardening, educational, cultural and wellness activities and events. If you or your local community organization are interested in providing free, public programming, hosting a special event or performing — music, dance, theater, spoken word, illusion, etc. — in the Garden, please complete this form.
