On the sunny Saturday of March 24, PSCers along with Roberto Mukaro Borrero, Friends of Brook Park Board Member, gathered at Brook Park in the South Bronx to give out the second annual Environmental Justice Award. This year's winner is Harry Bubbins, Director of Friends of Brook Park (http://www.friendsofbrookpark.org/). Bubbins and the crew of neighbors and friends have made a garden haven in 'asthma alley'. March 24 was a work day for friends and neighbors to plant trees and prepare their vegetable plots. The group also does outreach programs with youth taking them kayaking in the Bronx Kill and actively learning about and cleaning up the waters in the South Bronx. Bubbins is one of many coordinators of the Fresh Direct campaign. The campaign's goal is to stop Fresh Direct from having their truck loading station in the area.
