About the Foodway
The Bronx River Foodway is a pilot project at Concrete Plant Park developed in 2017 to examine how a sustainable food landscape can be integrated into a public park. The goal is to jump-start the imagination and think about new ways to use land within the city.
Currently the Foodway offers access to a variety of edible plants including medicinal plants like echinacea, nut trees like the chestnut, an assortment of native berries, as well as a section dedicated to kitchen herbs and recognizable veggies. Take a stroll through the Foodway and learn about all the edible beauties.
Foodway Resources for Educators and Visitors:
We are all following the Mayor’s guidelines during the Covid 19 pandemic. Please use caution when visiting parks for exercise and fresh air. Please always wear a face mask and be mindful about keeping a minimum 6 feet from other park users.
Currently Concrete Plant Park is closed for capital work aligned with the Hunts Point Access Plan. We look forward to welcoming volunteers when the park reopens, anticipated in March 2022.
For additional questions and concerns please email Nathan Hunter at Foodway@bronxriver.org for even more volunteer opportunities along the Bronx River!
