As July ends and August begins, you’ve still got time to check out the Floating Food Forest currently docked at Concrete Plant Park.
The Swale- Floating Food Forest, has arrived at Concrete Plant Park (Westchester Ave between Whitlock Ave & Bronx River Ave) and it’s functioning as a community space providing healthy free edibles for everyone. The purpose of the Swale project is to spark the imagination and offer the community the opportunity to create new ways of thinking about public food in public spaces. Along with providing free vegetables & herbs, partners have collaborated to host various programming that include a Movie Night, Family Day, Paddling & other free activities for the community to enjoy at Concrete Plant Park. The Swale project is opened Wednesday to Sunday’s 12pm-7pm. Please visit the BronxRiver.org calendar to learn more about Swale programming at Concreate Plant Park.
All are welcome to tour through the Swale – a floating food forest designed to provide free vegetables and herbs like kale, beets, chard, arugula, leeks, atichokes and others grown for the community.
