About Us

The project is a partnership between community based organizations (the United Community Centers and the Local Development Corporation of East New York); educational institutions (the Pratt Institute Center for Community and Economic Development and Cornell University Cooperative Extension); local community gardeners, youth, and craftspeople; and regional family farmers. Together, we grow food for the community, engage youth in hands-on agricultural learning and leadership training, develop economic opportunities for small scale producers and other entrepreneurs through a neighborhood farmers' market, preserve community gardens as open space, and educate residents about healthy food and healthy environments.
