Here are some leads for you
There are a number of Parks groups organized under the Partnership for Parks umbrella ( http://www.itsmypark.org/ ) associated with the NYC Parks Dept. To the east of you, in the alphabets are a wealth of community gardens where all you have to do is say, "can I help?" There is a triangle near Sheridan Square that is maintained by volunteers that always needs skilled gardener help, and the various block associations keep up their local parks, tree pits and do all kinds of semi-organized horticultural volunteer work. 
The umbrella organization for Parks community gardens in NYC is Parks Greenthumb: http://www.greenthumbnyc.org/ . This site has amazing links to garden organizations in NYC and beyond. As Greenthumb is alas, understaffed, they may take a while getting back to you, but its worth the waid. 
Both the Battery Park Conservancy and the Hudson River Park Conservancy use volunteers, and the gardening work is supervised by some of the best public horticulturalists in the business - a chance to learn from the best. 
Here are their websites:  http://www.bpcparks.org/bpcp/home/index.php
And the Hudson River Park website: http://www.hudsonriverpark.org/index_flash.html , with how to get involoved with the conservancy.

News from the tb-cybergardens mailing  list

Is there a park in Greenwich Village - near the
waterfront - that uses volunteers?  Also is there a
phone no. where I can reach your group? 

Any help is much appreciated.
