The Amazing Bronx River Flotilla is a 5-mile paddle down the Bronx River taking place on Saturday, May 13 featuring site-specific excerpts of Building A Better Fishtrap. (Rain date is Sunday, May 14.) Each Flotilla participant will paddle through the river’s diverse landscapes, including the NY Botanical Gardens, the Bronx Zoo, and the southern urbanized stretches of the estuary. After the 5-mile paddle, a celebration party will take place at Hunts Point Riverside Park with entertainment and food for our fundraisers and their families to enjoy.
Space is limited! Register your team for the Amazing Bronx River Flotilla today.

We will come together to share age old traditions located in the preparations and care takings of our homes. This gathering is inspired by Nia Love’s need to reconnect and redirect her diet after age 50 (women of the yam). We will share food, recipes, stories and heirlooms.
Bring a family dish to share, if you can (those not requiring refrigeration is best). Dishes should highlight foods own natural flavors without additives (no sweeteners). Bring the recipe – we will look at the ingredients and their geographical knowledge, mental and physical health advantages and discuss what about these dishes have been gained or lost over generations. Bring a family heirloom to show and discuss and come prepared to share a story that united/brought you closer to your ancestors. Dress in comfortable clothes you can move in. Wine and beer available for purchase.
