Green Bronx Machine

Green Bronx Machine was born of the belief that we are all AMER-I-CANS! Together, we can grow, re-use resource and recycle our way into new and healthy ways of living; complete with self sustaining local economic engines. Inclusively and collectively, each and every member of our society offers a unique perspective with unlimited potential. Together, we can move those who are "apart from" society to become "part of" the driving force behind new solutions benefiting all of us.

Lockeland School Garden

The Lockeland Design Center garden will be comprised of three connected areas: a raised bed food production area, a butterfly garden area, and a school classroom area. The garden is to be located in the back of the school, just outside the cafeteria. This area was chosen for both it’s proximity to an existing water source, and for security as it located within a fenced area.

Lang Ranch Wellness Committee

We just got approved to move forward with our garden. The principal has made it clear that although he likes the garden idea, it's not his top priority. I want to be able to inform teachers about available lesson plans and ideas and get them in our new garden and use it.
