Green Bronx Machine uses the art and science of growing vegetables aligned to whole school, all subject, daily instruction integrating Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards, P21, International Baccalaureate and the UN Sustainable Development Goals to grow high performing schools and healthy behavioural outcomes.

GBM grows food year-round, indoors, regardless of seasonality, using 21st C technology and 90% less water and less space generating tonnes of food annually in communities that are food and resource-challenged.

Our program is 100% wholly replicable. By integrating a whole-school, community-oriented, project-based learning model that integrates low cost, readily available technology aligned to key performance indicators, teachers, students and all community stakeholders readily and willingly respond.

It is our belief that schools are the epicentres of the community and that by integrating systemic instruction with wellness, food production and food distribution that scale to living wage opportunities, we grow vegetables, our vegetables grow students, our students grow schools and our schools grow communities that are healthy, inclusive, self-reliant and thriving. To date, over 10,000 schools in America are using our technology daily!
