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 second series of stories, collected in 2022.
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, Phillip McCoy, Pamela Ysabel Rozon, Adanna Taylor, and Bronx Documentary Center Coordinator, Ricardo Partida. We also thank Miriam Laytner, Mellon Summer Research Fellow Oral Histories and Nailah Garard, Mellon Summer Research Intern Oral Histories.
