This tour will feature some of the Bronx’s community-led food and garden projects. Our first stop is Padre Plaza Success Community Garden, where gardeners grow and cook healthy food, sell produce at their seasonal farmers' market and teach others about gardening in the community. We will have lunch at the Waterfront Garden in Soundview, an apt stop on City of Water Day. Finally, we will visit La Finca del Sur Urban Farm, a women-led, non-profit farm and community for food, family, gardening and fun.
