BACKGROUND: Drew Gardens is a two-acre site in West Farms on the Bronx River. Formerly a dumping site, the garden, named for activist and founder Drew Hyde, has been in operation since the mid 1990’s. In addition to being a peaceful refuge for the community, the garden has become a living classroom for students of all ages to study the Bronx River, the urban forest, pollinator gardening, and the inter-dependency of plants and animals in these habitats.
