Support the Brownsville Student Farm Project

There are thousands of acres of abandoned lots in New York owned by the city. At the corner of Sutter and Rockaway Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn, across from a large public elementary school, sits an 8,000 square foot lot, currently full of weeds and trash. Nora Painten want to transform this lot into a urban teaching farm that will beautify the land, educate local youth, and provide a source of fresh produce for the community. 

Nora led the program at the existing Slow Food Urban Harvest Garden this past summer and is uniquely qualified to transform this empty lot into another oasis in the food desert.
