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
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
