The program serves people at their homes or wherever it is needed or online.

  • Only virtual (online or over the phone).

We will deliver the seedling directly outside your home!

Dates and Times

This is an ongoing program.

Delivery of seedlings will be organized in advance on a first come, first serve basis. 

Additional information

Fill out this form to request a seedling. Either a parent or a student may fill out this form. Also: tell families about the program! If you wish to support our program, see our page for ways to help Henry Street Farms:

We have about 70 seedlings available; first come first served. Due to covid-19, we will tell you in advance the date and time of seedling delivery, and leave the seedling outside your home.

The goal of the program is to get more kids interested in growing food in our city. We hope this will also provide a fun activity for kids who are stuck at home now that schools are closed.

Thank you for your participation and support.
