In an ongoing tradition of uplifting and celebrating community gardening in New York City since 1984, our 39th Annual GreenThumb GrowTogether Conference will kick off the community gardening season on Saturday, April 1, 2023. We're thrilled to announce that we’ll be back in person again at CUNY Graduate Center in Manhattan (365 5th Ave, New York, NY 10016)! The theme for this full-day conference is Learning from the Land: Bounties of Wisdom from Community Gardens. All activities are free and open to the public.

We are honored to welcome Chief Vincent Mann as our keynote speaker.

Chief Mann is the Turtle Clan Chief of the Ramapough Lenape Nation, which encompasses Passaic County NJ, Warwick, and surrounding areas in New York. He has been at the forefront of the New Jersey environmental justice movement, where he has worked to protect the water supply of 4 million people and advocated for the community living in close proximity to the Ringwood mines superfund site. He is also working on co-creating an organic farm, known as the Munsee Three Sisters Medicinal Garden, to create local jobs and, more importantly, to bring back food sovereignty to his Clan.
