Join us for the first tour of the 2019 Bronx Food and Farm Tour Series!

This Saturday, May 11, NYBG’s Bronx Green-Up is excited to present the School Gardens and Farms Bus Tour, highlighting three unique Bronx school gardens and farms that demonstrate a bounty of learning and growing.

First stop will be DeWitt Clinton High School, which hosts Meg’s Garden, the James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center, and Teens for Food Justice’s new hydroponics farm lab. Next we’ll see all the gardening and art that can be done in a smaller space at the PS 32 Belmont Children’s Garden. Finally, we’ll share a tasty lunch at the Morris Campus Educational Farm, which features a hoop house, production beds, culinary and mindfulness areas, and a stunning mural.
