Promoting holistic, healthy living

  • Seasonal tenant farming on the building’s organic rooftop urban farm and greenhouse with the guidance of a farm manager
  • Periodic cooking demonstrations and tenant events to introduce children to nutritious foods
  • Stairwell murals to encourage stair use

Rooftop Urban Farm

Intervale Green residents grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers on WHEDco’s Rooftop Urban Farm. The rooftop farm fosters a relationship with nature and connects residents through positive social interactions, leading to a greener, healthier community.

Green Roofs

Green roofs collect and reduce storm water runoff and improve the air quality in the neighborhood, which has the second highest asthma rate in the Bronx. By filtering and diverting water from the City’s sewer system, Intervale Green contributes to cleaner waterways and beaches.
