Bronx Urban Farms Trolley Tour

  • Jul 13, 2013 · 9:30 AM

All aboard for the third annual urban farm tour series, narrated group tours of some of the borough’s amazing urban farms and community gardens. Each tour includes a healthful lunch, a lesson in agro-tourism, and entertainment. The July tour will feature the rich food and cultural landscape of the Bronx’s African-Americans. Our first stop is Padre Plaza Success Community Garden, where gardeners grow and sell produce at their seasonal farmers’ market. Next stop is Taqwa Community Farm, an urban farm with chickens, bees, and plants for food and medicine. Participants will round off the day among the oversized vegetable plots at River Garden. A gardening mini-workshop will be held in the cool shade of the rainwater-harvesting roof and shed. The event is co-hosted by the Bronx Food & Sustainability Coalition, Bronx Tourism Council, GreenThumb/NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, and Bronx Green-Up. Tickets are $30; R.S.V.P. required. All proceeds go toward the support and programming of Bronx community gardens. To register or for more information, e-mail [masked]
• 9:30 a.m. departure from midtown Manhattan, 3 p.m. return. (You may opt to meet at the first stop in the Bronx at 10:30.)
