Join us for our guided 5-mile bike tour through Soundview as we visit GreenThumb community gardens and enjoy gorgeous waterfront views! The route will start at Concrete Plant Park, followed by a scenic ride through Soundview Park along the Bronx River, featuring four charming community gardens. Highlighting various functions; food production, event space, rows of flower and vegetable beds, there’s a garden for every interest along the tour. The ride will culminate at Waterfront Community Garden for a meet and greet of community members. These gardens are perfect for those interested in joining a garden but are not yet members.

Community gardens are volunteer-run green spaces where people can come together around growing food and community. Gardens across the city are seeking new members to plant produce and flowers, host events, maintain community spaces, and contribute extra hands for garden projects! Beginners and experienced gardeners are welcome! NYC Parks GreenThumb supports over 550 community gardens and 20,000 gardeners by providing gardening space, materials and supplies, and technical assistance at no cost. GreenThumb hosts innovative gardening workshops, trainings, and conferences. Learn more at nyc.gov/parks/greenthumb.

This event is in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation's Bike Unit and Transportation Alternatives.
