Located on the boarder of Crown Heights and East Flatbush the Youth Farm has a thriving compost network. The public is invited to compost with us each Wednesdays when our Farmer's Market is open from 2:30 pm until 5:30 pm. Currently, our Farmer's Market runs through October 26, 2011. Please note we cannot
accept meat, poultry, fish, cheese/dairy, bones or oily foods for composting.
We will gladly accept leaf drop-offs for composting, as well as sawdust or small wood chips! We can arrange to accomodate a specific drop off time for these three items. Use this link
to find our contact information.
The Farm provides fresh affordable food for the community, while providing educational and employment opportunities for youth and adults. The Farm is used as a base for creating new experiantial based school curriculum, serving as an outdoor classroom and a catalyst for education from cooking and nutrition to migrant labor right and trade policy. Student farmers work during the summer on the farm, learning about sustainable agriculture and community leadership. Produce from the farm is sold at a low cost to the community through a Community Supported Agriculture program and a weekly farmer market.
