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!

On Friday July, 10 2009 we went on a trip to Highline which is an elevated walking area in downtown Manhattan filled with various plants. We had lunch, walked through and ended up on the west side near the Hudson River. Here are some pictures.
