Community TeamWorks Volunteers Plant Urban Farm

Posted on 5/13/2011 by The Bridge

Community TeamWorks (CTW) volunteers from Goldman Sachs recently helped to plant in our Urban Farm at the Upper East Side residence in Manhattan. Under the tutelage of our partners at the Horticultural Society of New York, the volunteers helped to get the garden ready for summer’s bounty.

The garden now looks fantastic! Check out all the wonderful pictures on our Flickr
. But it’s not only beautiful; it’s functional as well. Our Urban Farms are an integral part of our integrated approach to mental and physical health. Growing some of our own vegetables teaches clients how to eat healthier, as well as provides them with a sense of accomplishment and pride for cultivating them. Lunch for the clients and volunteers was prepared using vegetables that can be found in the garden, and the whole event was topped off with the planting of a commemorative peach tree.

The Bridge extends its deepest gratitude for the time and effort the Goldman Sachs CTW team put in to this project. We encourage all types of volunteering. Some of the main areas for people to volunteer with The Bridge are teaching a skill to our clients, like using the computer or cooking, and leading social or recreational activities, like a trip to a museum or residence activities. For information about volunteering please contact Ann Hyatt, Director of Development and External Relations, at or call 212-663-3000, ext. 379.
