Take a tour of the Bronx River Foodway, the first edible-food forest integrated into a New York City park. Together, Nathan Hunter of the Bronx River Alliance and Journei Bimwala, a member of Concrete Friends, will introduce this dynamic community food resource, along with the benefits and challenges that come with caring for a unique space like this.

The tour will meet at Concrete Plant Park, for a look at its industrial structures and riverside access, before walking the Foodway. The tour will last about an hour and a half. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and to bring a bag for some foraging along the way!

The tour will be led by Nathan Hunter and Journei Bimwala, see bio below.

Comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes are encouraged.

The health and safety of our community is paramount. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination with ID and a mask is required for ALL in-person experiences. See guidelines: https://ohny.org/covid-19-update/
