Our Mission

The Bronx Canasta is an innovative food production and economic empowerment program that aims to build self-reliance of Bronx community farmers to grow their own food and create, market, and distribute value-added products based on crops grown in the Bronx.


The Bronx Canasta is working on becoming a cooperative of urban farms and gardens that aims to meet the food needs and nutrition of communities that have limited or no access to fresh organic produce in The Bronx. We provide educational training services on theĀ  maintenance and sustainability of urban agriculture. In addition, we focus on the development and building of systems that supports food production and the creation and distribution of value-added products based on fresh produce grown in the farms and gardens of our cooperative.
