Urban farmers celebrate six years of innovation and award-winning success at a food oasis in the South Bronx
In the food desert of the South Bronx, Services for the UnderServed has created a green oasis where kiwis, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, apples and pears are being cultivated as part of a therapeutic horticulture initiative. The Third Avenue urban farm in Morrisania is the latest in S:US’ growing portfolio of community farms located at dozens of its supported housing developments throughout NYC. To celebrate this year’s harvest, S:US is hosting a Sept. 23 luncheon featuring delicious produce from its farms. Individuals with developmental disabilities served by S:US who are recent graduates of the Basic Culinary Arts training program at Kingsborough Community College, alongside individuals with a history of mental illness, will prepare and serve the meal.
