East New York Farms!

The mission of the East New York Farms Project is to organize youth and adults to address food justice in our community by promoting local sustainable agriculture and community-led economic development.  East New York Farms! is a project of the United Community Centers in partnership with local residents.

We have been working with youth, gardeners, farmers, and entrepreneurs to build a more just and sustainable community since 1998.

COMMUNITY GARDENS
East New York has more community gardens than any neighborhood in the city, and many produce food for the market and local families. We support gardens with workshops, resources, and assistance from our youth. We also connect gardens with members looking for space to grow.
YOUTH INTERNSHIP
We hire 35 young people participate in our Internship Program every year. In this intensive 9-month program, young people engage in hands-on learning around environment, health, community development, leadership and social justice.
COMMUNITY EDUCATION
Our team of Community Educators provide cooking demonstrations, presentations, and gardening workshops to educate our neighbors about how to grow, prepare, and preseve healthy food.
URBAN FARMS
We operate three urban farms and one garden in East New York to increase access to locally grown produce, as well as to provide opportunities to learn, gather, and volunteer. Two of our farms are in NYCHA developments in the neighborhood.
FARMERS' MARKET
Our two community-run farmers markets make fresh food available and affordable, while building our local economy and creating places for neighbors to meet and greet.
