Nursery

Get your plants in Gowanus!

Volunteers and students help us grow a wide array of native plants well-adapted to our urban conditions. The plants we grow are installed in gardens throughout the Gowanus Watershed and are also for sale! Discounts are available for GCC members, public schools, and community gardens.

Come to one of our seasonal plant sales around the neighborhood, or make an appointment to visit our nursery, located at the Salt Lot, by emailing plants@gowanuscanalconservancy.org or calling 718.541.4378
