At North Brooklyn Farms, we convert vacant lots into productive green spaces to make plants, dirt and the experience of growing vegetables available to everyone.
Two summers ago, we built our first farm in Havemeyer Park. This year, we have a new waterfront location at the footprint of the former Domino Sugar Factory refinery building, which has been off-limits to the public for more than 150 years. This time, we have more land, a bigger vision and a longer lease at this location.
We exist to provide a green space for the community. A place where children can run around barefoot, where produce is grown, where people can temporarily escape the stress of the urban environment, without leaving their neighborhood. We are a farm, a venue, a place to meditate, a real-world classroom. We’ve started the build, but it’s a big undertaking, and we need your support. The money you contribute will go to buying soil (lots and lots of clean soil) materials and equipment so we can finish the park and make this space as beautiful as it deserves to be.
