Bronx Green-Up offers the chance to discover the urban outdoors and learn by doing in local community and school gardens and urban farms. We offer seasonal, garden-based workshops and partner with sites on projects from planting and pruning to food production and light carpentry. We also offer more in-depth instruction through our certificate programs: Grow More Vegetables, Pruning, and Soil is Alive.

Instructional Videos

Haven’t been able to make it to one of our free community workshops, but still want hands-on guidance? Watch one of our instructional videos by BGU staff and learn how to get your own garden ready for the season, replenish the soil, make a trellis to support vining crops, and more!
