Winter at the farm. Too much snow for our chickens so it up to our team to keep them warm. Delicious lettuce grown in our greenhouse for distribution in the Brooklyn Rescue Mission Urban Harvest Center food pantry.
BRMUHC Bed-Stuy Farm Visitors have the opportunity to harvest and sample our fresh produce.
In 2005, BRM created partnerships with the New York City environmental and food justice organizations to break ground on an abandoned lot behind the Mission in order to grow fruits and vegetables for pantry recipients. The site, once a neighborhood garbage dump, was transformed into an urban oasis that has served several hundred people since its creation. The farm has become a community gathering space and a classroom to teach neighborhood youth about food growing and community service.
