Bronx Non-Profit Teaches Children How to Eat Healthier and Grow Produce in Urban Gardens

The Green Bronx Machine is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the Bronx that offers healthy alternatives to junk food for children and adults through hands-on urban farming education.

Originally an after-school, alternative program for high school students, Green Bronx Machine has evolved into K-12+ model fully integrated into core curriculum. Our students grow, eat and love their vegetables en route to spectacular academic performance. 30,000 pounds of Bronx vegetables later, our favorite crops include healthy students, high performing schools, graduates, registered voters, living wage jobs and members of the middle class.

Please sign up to volunteer if you would like to get involved with the Green Bronx Machine.
