Since 2002, GreenThumb has contracted with Kingsboro Psychiatric Hospital's Urban Oasis program to grow out vegetable starts for distribution to community gardens. This program is a horticultural therapy project that grows tasty vegetables while supporting the growth and well being of its clients. Thanks to this partnership, GreenThumb is able to distribute organic, non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) plants in unique varieties unavailable in your local nursery. Come tour the facility, including a commercial greenhouse and urban agriculture site. Learn about the Urban Oasis program and meet the growers. After the tour, hundreds of tasty vegetable plants will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is available on-site.
