Who we are.
Our model is built on mutual respect and the desire to learn from one another. And it works. Our 100+ member households reflect the diversity of our neighborhood’s religions, nationalities, languages, socio-economics, and inter-generational families.
We feed the neighborhood with 1.3 tons of affordable, nutrient-dense food per season, and grow more than 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables from around the world. Our compost volunteers have diverted more than 36,000 pounds of food waste from city landfills and we've trained dozens of community members how to compost at home.
We are a proud educational partner of both The Benjamin Franklin Magnet School and BCS Brooklyn High School for Leadership and Community Service, helping the next generation learn how to live sustainably.
