Bronx Events: Discovery H.S. Farmers Market This Thursday, 11/18

Student at Discovery High School in Kingsbridge will be hosting a farmers market this Thursday, Nov. 18 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., featuring organic vegetables, herbs and plants that they grew themselves with green walls and in-classroom gardens. A news crew from CNN will be on hand to film the market for a segment they're doing on the school's gardening program, which started as part of a lesson in teacher Steve Ritz' living environment class.

This is not their first green foray--the students already hosted two luncheons last year, serving only food they grew and harvested. Last week, they built garden installations (with their own irrigation systems!) in the NBC Experience Store, on 49th Street in Manhattan (see above photo).

Stop by Thursday for some fresh organic produce; all proceeds from the market will benefit the school's programs. Other Bronx events this week are listed in our calendar, below.
