Turf's goal is to transform community health by working with community residents and helping them design projects, programs, and systems to improve the quality of food available in their community. Turf has been working side by side with community residents in Parkchester (Southeast Bronx) for the past four years!
Turf has offered workshops and film screenings on sustainable agriculture; cooking activities for seniors, youth, and adults; paid internships for high school students; and farm trips for community residents. In 2009, Turf started Parkchester's first community supported agriculture (csa), now called Parkchester CSA, with community residents and the support of Just Food.
Turf is currently designing it's next community project and will post information on this project soon. Also, Turf is currently updating its blog so please be patient with us as we change our layout, design, and content in the next few weeks. We hope to have our blog completely updated by the end of March 2012.
