This tour will feature the rich food and cultural landscape of the Bronx’s African Americans. Our first stop is Padre Plaza Success Community Garden, where gardeners grow food, cook healthy, and sell produce at their seasonal farmers market. Next stop, Taqwa Community Farm, an urban farm with chickens, bees, gardeners, and plants for food and medicine. Participants will round off the day at River Garden. Walk among the oversized vegetable plots and smell the flowers on a hot summer’s day. We will feature a gardening mini-workshop in the cool shade of the rain-water harvesting roof and shed. Lunch is included.
Tickets are $30, cash or check payable to Green Thumb Community Fund. Proceeds go directly to support the Bronx community gardens you visit. Wheelchair-accessible transportation is available. Children 12 & under ride free! Registration required.
