People’s Garden NYU

To President John Sexton:

We, the undersigned students of New York University, respectfully request permission for students to plant a vegetable garden in the gated grass area behind Silver Towers in the area facing Houston Street between Mercer Street and LaGuardia Place. The harvest could be donated to a nearby food pantry to help feed the hungry in our community.

This garden would serve as an outdoor classroom for NYU students and neighborhood youth. It would be a beautiful, tangible, and robust commitment to NYU's dedication to public service, creative teaching, innovative research practices, and environmental stewardship.
