volunteer projects

PlantingSeveral thousand corporate and individual volunteers annually enjoy planting and restoration projects on Randall's Island.

Employees from corporations such as Bloomberg, LP have visited the Island for over 10 years planting flowers, shrubs and trees. Goldman Sachs employees have cleaned specific areas of the park and helped beautify new gardens and pathways. We earned the "Outstanding Project Management" award from Goldman Sachs Community TeamWorks, for our volunteer projects. Said one volunteer, "I come here every year and live in an apartment and don't have a chance to plant, so I love to do my part at Randall's Island to make it beautiful."

Upon arrival at the Park, groups will find the planting site prepared with tools, gloves, and planting materials all ready. Our experienced horticulturist explains the tasks, and with assistants, they oversee and help your volunteers throughout the day. A typical day runs from 9 am to 3:00 pm. Companies funds for planting materials, tools, bottled water and lunch.

For more information on group volunteer projects, please call Sabina Ellentuck at (212) 860-1899 to discuss your firm's volunteer needs and interests. You'll have a great time at Randall's Island working together and see wonderful results from your efforts!
