14,000 square feet

4 public high schools serving 1600 students

First urban production & educational farm in Morrisania

Unlimited impact on food insecurity & education

A Farm in The South Bronx

Morris Campus Farm (MCF) was built and created in 2017. It is located on 14,000 square feet of underutilized parking lot at Morris Campus High School. It is the first urban production and educational farm in Morrisania.

The farm is a collaborative effort of Morris Campus Educational Farm Inc., Students, Administrators, Teachers and the school community of the campus schools: School For Excellence, Bronx International, Morris Academy For Collaborative Studies and High School of Violin and Dance and Green- Up of the New York Botanical Garden.

Building an urban production farm on campus has allowed us to transform the students’ educational experience and rectify issues of food insecurity and fresh produce accessibility. Our farm also collaborates with nearby community gardens and gardens across the South Bronx.
