Urban Farming with Project EATS - Marcus Garvey Farm

Help this community-run farm put fresh healthy produce on the menu this summer!

Project EATS is an organization devoted to bring fresh organic produce to NYC communities in need, by growing it ourselves! Volunteers will assist with all farming aspects, from composting and weeding, to harvesting and processing crops to building benches and raised beds.

All helpers will also have the opportunity to learn from farm staff both informally and through occasional workshops. This project also serves two nearby gardens.

Group Friendly

Partner

Project EATS launches farm sites in conjunction with neighborhood high schools, workers in the community, participants in one and/or more community-based organizations. Working in partnership, high schools and community organizations provide the site and the materials needed to construct the farms. Project EATS provides farmers, facilitators, and any additional materials needed to start the farms and an outdoor community market. From food grown at the farms, Project EATS develops product lines that make it possible for communities to expand and diversify their markets and revenue streams. It also provides paid apprenticeships for community youth and adults.
