The Norwood Youthmarket provides the community in and around the hospital with fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables grown by regional farmers. GrowNYC works in partnership with the Friends of Van Cortlandt Park, who hire neighborhood youth to manage the farmstand. Participating youth learn small business skills, nutrition education and much more, all while serving their community. Norwood Youthmarket is in its fourth season.

The New York Times recently profiled several Bronx community gardeners as part of an article about immigrant gardeners and their influence on the increasing number of community gardens being built across the City. 

The Bronx gardeners profiled are all from United We Stand Community Garden, a garden GrowNYC rebuilt in 2016.
