Partnership with Stepping Stones Residential Treatment Center

Green Bronx Machine, in partnership with Stepping Stones and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, is building the first ever commercial farm fully staffed and run by foster-care youth. This hydroponic vertical farm, built in a specialized green house in Appalachia, is a completely commercial endeavor and will provide living-wage employment opportunities along with 21 tiny homes for foster-care youth who are aging out of the system. In a community that has no grocery store or access to healthy food, this is a revolutionary workforce development model that will flood the community with healthy, fresh, nutritious food all year long.
