We are The Bronx is Blooming, a Bronx-based non-profit dedicated to three things: environmental advocacy, community building, and youth leadership development.
We run community-based service projects in green spaces throughout the Bronx. By focusing on the environmental needs of the Bronx we build community and through our PLACE program, we foster youth leadership.
We have accomplished a lot of positive change since The Bronx is Blooming’s founding in 2011. With the help and support from people like you, we have implemented volunteer programs at 17 parks in the Bronx. We have completed over 28,000 hours of service to our parks with the help of over 7,000 volunteers. It would take a single staff person 14 years of full time work to match our time commitment.
We are currently running our spring fundraising campaign – Springtime Seeds!
We are so proud of what we have accomplished, and are thankful for all the support from people like you. But we’re just getting started. The Bronx is Blooming continues to implement programs that foster environmental stewardship, engage in positive youth development, and promote community building. We’re ready to expand our reach, intensify our programs, and increase our capacity.
