We are excited about our new initatives!
Last season we introduced the Westchester Local Food Project Initiative. WLFP connects schools, community gardens, local farmers and the community to help rebuild a new, sustainable, inclusive and healthy local food system.
This season we are thrilled to add another initiative, The Access Nature Project that brings the benefits of Nature to those traditionally overlooked in outdoor programming.
