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!
