New Libertad Urban Farm Workdays and Events!
After a campaign that started in 2009 with guerilla gardening the Libertad Urban Farm has finally found a home! With help from community residents, Bronx Community Board 2 and Councilperson Maria del Carmen Arroyo the Libertad Urban Farm will now be located at 972 Simpson street. We have been anxiously preparing for this time and with a winter that seemed snowy and unrelenting we are FINALLY having our first workday.
Join us, Saturday, March 28th from 12-4PM at 972 Simpson street between Westchester Ave and 163rd Street for an afternoon or laying mulch, topsoil, building raised beds, refreshments and community building. We will be preparing raised beds, enjoying music, planting seeds and growing justice. So come by just for the day or learn how to become a LUF volunteer farmer (no experience necessary).
Plan on joining us? Please fill out this form so we know you're coming and have enough materials to accommodate all of our volunteers. Can't wait to see you!
Our Indiegogo ended about a month ago and we didn't meet our goal. However, the offer to triple our end goal still stands. In addition to offline fundraising we are continuing our crowdfunding efforts on Fundrazr or you can continue to donate directly to our PayPal. If you cannot make our Brunch With Mama Tanya then please consider donating. We consider the work we do to affirm that #blacklivesmatter, every day in every facet of our lives, including the ability to feed our families real food and earn a dollar with integrity and pride.
The South Bronx Mobile Market & Buying Club are currently on break with a strong return in the Spring. We are taking this time to re-strategize, expand and renovate! In fact we are currently raising funds to renovate the inside of the mobile market bus, adding appliances and gaining the appropriate permits and licenses.
The buying club will return in early-April and the South Bronx Mobile Market will roll out early-May.
