Celebrate Ancestral Wisdom: Connections To The Land

The Foodway at Concrete Plant Park is NYC’s only edible food forest on public land. It is a special place where connection has taken on a new and unique meaning for our community as a connection to the land – and to access to fresh herbs, food, and fruit.

The Foodway has allowed us to offer surrounding communities programming that teaches horticultural stewardship and the benefits of plant life – some of which can be foraged directly from the foodway. Some of this programming includes herbal distributions, volunteer opportunities, and Foodway tours.


The Foodway has been welcoming to the community during events year-round. We have been able to collaborate with partners and expand our reach even further, and wider than just the Bronx River corridor. One notable event that truly embodied our connections within partnerships this year was the 2nd Annual Community Banquet.

With your support, we can continue to activate the Foodway for the local community to learn, thrive, and expand their knowledge with exclusive programming.
