City Gardening Expands in the U.S. during Pandemic
On pieces of unused land in the Bronx, gardeners from many neighborhoods work together to make more than 12 farm hubs. The gardeners are combining efforts for their community gardens and harvests. Profits from the sales are reinvested in their communities.
Throughout the pandemic they are producing leafy green vegetables and root crops like garlic, and also are learning from the pandemic so that they become [truly] resilient.
The Bronx’s farm hubs are part of an urban gardening movement across the country. The gardeners are seeking to empower their communities by urging them to grow their own food. That’s empowering is about more than food.”
Millions of Americans live in neighborhoods without healthy food. And unhealthy fast food is everywhere. In the Bronx, Karen Washington has spent several years pushing urban farming forward. “Healthy food is a human right, along with clean water”. She is a member of the supervisory group from the New York Botanical Garden and has
assisted neighbor-hoods in starting community gardens. Washington says COVID-19 made a lot of people want to grow their own food. “If we are going to fight viruses,” she said, “we need to start eating healthy.”
Through its Bronx Green-Up program, or BGU, the New York Botanical Garden has long offered support to community gardens and provided more than 10,000 small herb and vegetable plants. Early in the pandemic, the program leaders realized “that food insecurity has always been a big issue in the Bronx,” says Ursula Chanse, the program’s director.
Thank you Maestro.
