Celebrate the sites along the beautiful Bronx River during Bronx Week 2023! This tour will visit the longstanding and productive River Garden, one of the oldest community gardens in the Bronx which features large productive beds and sustainable gardening practices including rainwater harvesting and composting, and provides seasonal community events for all. Next we’ll walk to Starlight Park where you’ll enjoy a healthy food tasting and learn more about the Bronx River, where dolphins were spotted earlier this year! We’ll end the tour at the nearby Concrete Plant Park, a former concrete plant that now hosts the Bronx River Foodway—one of NYC’s only edible food forests—growing food and medicinal plants.
