Welcome to our adventures in urban farming in NYC! What began as an experiment with growing a few veggies in the Bronx has become a great success for our Bridge clients and community. This is an online record of our experiences on the farm, written by Stacey Van Rossum, with photos taken by Natalie Brickajlik, the Coordinator of our Horticulture Program. Thanks to funding from Burpee and The United Way of New York, our program was made possible!

We began work on a new site. We began to remove gravel, large stones and buried construction debris from a back yard on East 111 Street. With help from John C. and the Green Team we will turn the back yard into a garden.
