Building Community Roots
BRACKEN WOODS REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT
Join Our Efforts
Bracken Woods Lane hosts several empty lots that have been gifted to CUP by the Port Authority. CUP is working to develop these lots into community gardens, play spaces, and green learning spaces. The seven lots will host a play garden, a learning garden, an orchard, two community gardens, and a playground for resident children.
Students will work together to grow food, learn about nutrition, play, and practice conservation. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the earth, bio systems, and how to efficiently grow their own food.
PLANTING WITH STUDENTS
Growing at Every Level
Every youth development program at CUP has some agricultural component. All students engage in planting, growing and harvesting. Students also hatch and raise chickens each spring!
