The Center has Launched!

On January 4th, Green Bronx Machine officially launched The National Health, Wellness and Learning Center at CS55! What was originally unused library space is now a sustainable and entirely self-sufficient garden, classroom, and kitchen; a 21st Century State of the Art Learning Facility.

The opening of the Center allows Green Bronx Machine to keep doing what we do – educating, feeding, and inspiring students, and changing the narrative of outcomes for children in the Bronx and across America!

Some of the exciting features include our:

  • Indoor Teaching Farm, with seven Tower Garden systems that keep crops growing fresh regardless of the weather outside
  • A Traditional Grow Light System
  • A Seedling Development System
  • Electricity-Generating Bicycles
  • Media and Resource Center, stocked with Common Core curriculum guides and lesson plans so that our educators and students can maximize the benefits of the space
  • An Outdoor Garden with raised garden beds and self-irrigation system
  • The Green Bronx Machine Mobile Classroom Kitchen!
