In the spring of 2020, NYBG’s Bronx Green-Up joined with Bronx-based gardens and urban farms to address food insecurity by growing and distributing fresh fruits and vegetables to local people in need. Since then, this network has grown into a movement that unites community garden sites and BIPOC-led farms upstate with local non-profit organizations and the New York City Housing Authority for a more resilient community.
Join us for an inspiring panel discussion about organizing, gardening, and community building with Cayla Casciani of Morning Glory Community Garden, Regina Ginyard of South Bronx Food Hub Collective, and Kadeesha Williams of Iridescent Earth Collective, moderated by Ursula Chanse, Senior Director of NYBG’s Bronx Green-Up.
