La Finca Del Sur Urban Farm

What began as the vision of two South Bronx women who saw an opportunity in an empty lot filled with garbage and weeds, has transformed into a charming green space that not only grows vegetables but also leadership skills amongst females in the community.

This urban farmer cooperative led by Latina and Black women and their allies is committed to building healthy neighborhoods through economic empowerment, increased nutritional awareness, training and education, and advocating for social and political equality for food justice in low-income communities.
