The Bushwick Grows! Community Farm is bustling with activity at 1474 Gates Avenue! The courtyard at RiseBoro's Youth Center is now an interactive demonstration farm space focused on delicious, healthy food and food ecosystems. The farm hosts a range of free crop cultivation and culinary workshops for the whole community. The space also serves as a place for diverse community gatherings and events.
Take a walk through of the site and observe all aspects including water source, light, shade, power lines, drains, etc. Participants will work in small groups to brainstorm ideas for various categories of the farm. Creative and imaginative thinking is encouraged! This should be fun and ideas can be completely outside the box.
Take another walk through in the garden with proposed designs in hand so participants can visualize the design within the space. Participants will evaluate each design proposal and vote on which they think is best.
Unveiling of final and fully developed design based on all community input!
RiseBoro is excited to present two Farm designs based on the Community's feedback. Join us on Thursday, March 29th for the revealing of the final design presentation.
