Thanks to a generous donation from Green Mountain Energy Company the South Bronx Mobile will be getting solar panels, turning our bus into a COMPLETE clean energy vehicle!
Join us Monday, December 9th at 3:00 pm when Green Mountain Energy Company presents us with a "big check". Refreshments will be served!
We are happy to announce that New York City Housing, Preservation and Development has given the community permission to develop the Simpson Street lot into an urban farm! With the leadership of The BLK Projek the community signed petitions, tweeted and sent Facebook messages to the city agency asking for permission to turn the undeveloped lot into an open community space, workforce development site and and educational food growing space.
We are now in the process of registering the lot with HPD and building a core group!
If you are passionate about farming and/or gardening, want to help increase food access in the South Bronx and believe in social justice, especially if you live in the Bronx then we need your help!
Learn how you can get involved and help us build the Libertad Urban Farm.
The BLK Projek is a women of color led organization that harnesses the power of the local, good food movement to create and catalyze economic development for low income women and youth. Through our innovative and community led programming we seek to make more healthy, whole communities that will lead, shape and benefit from a more accessible food system.
In our short time, we are extremely proud of the inroads we have been able to make with the generous support of foundations like Jesse Noyes, Claneil and Simon Bolivar and mostly from individual donors like you!
In order for us to continue to do this work, grow, expand and stay accountable, help from folks like you is absolutely necessary. So whether it is a single dollar or one hundred dollars with your support we can continue to create programming that empowers residents, creates better choices for a healthier environment and catalyzes economic development.
So please donate today!
