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. Compost
East NY Farms! expanded our system in reaction to the city's budget cuts for community composting programs. Having a good demonstration site for gardens could encourage others to make their own, and enable us to divert some of the GT compost, etc... to gardens in need. We have a new 5 bin system, 3 curing bins and 1 storage bin. We compost garden waste, cover crops and food scraps from vendors at our market and in the neighborhood. We are trying to establish, with the help of a master composter, a drop off system at our Farmer's Market.
