LI Greenmarket Programs

 

Outside of our community-based markets, LI Greenmarket Inc. seeks to revitalize our home in Long Island and improve the economic and social condition of residents through the following outreach programs and activities:

 

 

Community Gardening & Composting


In 2014 LI Greenmarket Inc. installed community gardens at Sherman Brown Park, North Shore LIJ Health System, and Freeport’s Zion Cathedral Church. In addition to planning and developing each garden, LI Greenmarket Inc. helped create and install 12 raised beds and provided plant materials and educational and technical support, including detailed composting instructions. LI Greenmarket also runs our own Long Beach-based composting facility, supported by compostable waste donations from community members and partners. As part of our educational outreach, we offer information sessions at various locations across Long Island to teach residents how to create their own compost piles at home and incorporate green and environmentally friendly techniques into their own gardens.
