Shop at Whole Foods for BBG

Be sure to shop at the new Brooklyn Whole Foods Market Third & 3rd store this Saturday, January 11. That day, five percent of net sales will go to BBG's children's education programs. The Garden will also offer customers a chance to win two family memberships through a scavenger hunt in the store’s produce section. BBG is also serving as horticultural partner for Whole Food Market’s new Fund a Fig project in Brooklyn. Buy one of the project's reusable bags at the Brooklyn location and you'll be contributing to an effort to plant fig trees around the borough.
