As a social and historical resource accessible to students and the broader community, the Bronx Foodways Oral Histories Project and archive will continue to grow over time. Below, you can explore the first series of stories, collected in 2021.
The Bronx Foodways Oral Histories Project is made possible with support from the Mellon Foundation.
All photographs of the gardens and gardeners were taken by students from the Bronx Documentary Center. We thank this year’s student photographers: Lucki Islam, Pamela Ysabel Rozon, Adanna Taylor, and Bronx Documentary Center Coordinator, Ricardo Partida. We also thank Carmen Espinal, Oral Histories Research Assistant.
