List of DOE Vendors

Updated: Nov 7


Outdoor Classroom and School Garden Supplies



This is an evolving list of currently known 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 staff. We’ve inputted the information available to us, but each school must work with their budget lead person to follow specific procurement procedures (for example, even if a company has a DOE vendor number, if they are not a contracted vendor, you’ll need to get multiple bids). If you know of an additional company that is a DOE vendor and provides equipment for school gardens/outdoor classrooms, please send an email schoolgardens@grownyc.org to share the information so we can add it to the list.


You can access the list in table form here.


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