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!

Hello to all. We continue to sow seeds and harvest from what is ready to be harvested. We recently harvested more bokchoy, collard greens and salad greens. I made a salad with olives and the salad greens and it tasted good. This weekend I will saute the bokchoy and collard greens and eat it with dahl and wild rice. It will taste good. We planted more radishes, marigold and 6 rose bushes at E 111 St. We also cut back the trees and shrubs in the front yard at Morris Ave. which were growing wild and taking up unnecessary space in the garden.
