Bronx Food and Farm Walking Tour: South Bronx
Saturday, July 28, 2018
9:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
This farm walking tour features the bounty of fresh food grown in the Bronx and available at local farmers markets. Visit the flourishing 138th Street Community Garden and Padre Plaza which boast food production, a Wednesday market, and seasonal events in the garden. Brook Park is a community hub for green growth, not just of plants, but also of people. We’ll stop at the South Bronx Farmers Market to allow for some shopping of farm-fresh produce on the way to our final stop, La Finca del Sur Urban Farm, whose crops contribute to the community market.
Each tour includes a delicious, healthy lunch catered by Bronx-based B-Blossom. To reserve your seat, fill out the form at tinyurl.com/BXfood-farmtours2018 or call (718) 817-8026.
