We will tour the thriving community gardens, greenmarkets (bring shoulder bags and cash!) and any other green places that strike our fancy in downtown NYC.

These walks will take us to some of my favorite spots for respite from the noise and mayhem of the city streets. We can get coffee or tea and take-out lunch and eat in a garden or other beautiful spot. I know all the most interesting routes through The Village (East and West), Tribeca, The Battery, Nolita and the Lower East Side. Any part of town except the crowded tourist sites.

My aim is to show off the thriving greenmarkets and community gardens of NYC and show how they affect availability of nutritious food, peaceful, healthy activities and community in a range of neighborhoods.

I will guide as few as one person but require a minimum 80.00 fee.

50% of my fee goes to City Harvest.

My schedule is pretty flexible so the starting time can be adjusted to suit yours and I can do this event on dates that are not on my Vayable calendar.

I'm a decorative painter and a graphic designer/illustrator. I walk, hike and bicycle everywhere. I love the outdoors in the country as well as the city. I travel a lot to explore and always appreciate "insider" advice. Fresh, local food, wild food, organic farming and the environment are important to me. I love to forage for wild foods, especially mushrooms. I love meeting people and share all my great finds ranging around NYC! Full profile

We had a great time with Deidre. She took us to some lovely gardens we wouldn't have found otherwise, real spots of tranquility in the lower east side. She was great with our young kids, who enjoyed meeting lovely people, cats, dogs, chickens and fish, and shared with us her stories of New York and Jersey. Deidre is well connected to all going on with community gardens and was really accommodating - a great guide to an interesting side of manhattan.

We had a great time meeting Dierdre and seeing the community gardens! She knew a lot about how the gardens came to be such a vital part of the city. I even learned how I might be able to volunteer in my neighborhood. Dierdre is a true insider - she knows the other gardeners. Thanks for such a great experience!

Deirdre's Community Garden-Greenmarket Walk is a fantastic experience. Not just because we explored so many wonderful and hidden spots in the city, but also because Deirdre is the nicest person. She knows a lot about NYC and nature, which makes a perfect mix and lead us to places we didn't imagine they exist here. Also Deirdre donates part of the revenues to local garden projects. Thanks for a lot of fun, Deirdre!
