List of DOE Vendors


Outdoor Classroom and School Garden Supplies


Many public and charter schools in NYC want to build school gardens and outdoor classrooms, but need to purchase supplies from vendors that are approved by the NYC Department of Education. This is an evolving list of currently known (as of Fall 2021) DOE vendors that provide items related to furnishing and/or equipping an outdoor classroom/school garden and represents information shared with GrowNYC from NYC Department of Education teachers. If you know of a company that is a DOE vendor and provides equipment for this purpose, but is not listed, please send an email schoolgardens@grownyc.org to share the information so we can add it to the list. You can view this list with DOE vendor number information here.


GrowNYC School Gardens does not endorse any one company listed here. Companies listed here are for information sharing purposes only.
