Crotona Park East, Bronx
Founded in 2014

Morning Glory Community Garden was built as part of the 2014 Gardens for Healthy Communities program within the Mayor's Obesity Task Force Initiative.

From 2009 to 2011, Morning Glory Community Garden was a successful community garden at 149th Street and Southern Boulevard in the South Bronx.  The garden's recent relocation to Hoe Avenue has provided its members with a 9,500 square foot green space that currently features 18 raised beds, picnic tables, a shed, and border plantings.  The garden also has plans for a stage and rainwater harvesting system.

This week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York State's investment of $15 million in the construction of a new Greenmarket Regional Food Hub in the Bronx. The hub, which will be used by GrowNYC's Greenmarket Co. program, will be a state-of-the-art 120,000 square foot facility that will greatly increase New Yorkers' access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.
