What sorts of fun will there be? We’re so glad you asked!
- A raffle with goodies from our fabulous neighbors: Looking Glass, Tarot Society, Little Skips, East Village Shoes, CitiBike, Traditional Okinawan Karate, Broadway Lumber, Papa John’s, Birdy’s, and more!
- Handmade Bushwick City Farm shirts, patches, and posters!
- Pumpkin carving, with gourds donated by the wonderful Crest Hardware!
- Cargo bike hayrides from the Cargo Bike Collective!
- Face painting from the incredible Lucy Valkyrie
- And of course, Chicken Sh*t Bingo!!
How does Chicken Sh*t Bingo work? We feed our chickens a sumptuous meal and then let them loose on a life-size game board. Attendees buy squares ($5 for two squares!), and then we wait for the birds to do their business. If your square is deemed defecation-worthy, you win an awesome prize!
Hopefully all this poop talk is making you hungry—our party is generously sponsored by fab Bushwick restaurants Arrogant Swine and Duncan’s Burgers; plates of their delicious grub will be available at a mere $5 each. Once the fundraiser is over, we’ll all adjourn to Arrogant Swine’s beautiful backyard for an after party.
Can’t wait to see you on Sunday! Feel free to RSVP on Facebook here.
As summer 2015 comes to a close, here are some photos from another awesome gardening season. This was a year of firsts…In 2015, we made our first pizza at the farm, had our first flock of chicks hatch onsite and our first grape harvest. Our volunteers have continued to allow Bushwick City Farm to provide free food and a community space in an ever changing neighborhood. Thanks to everyone who makes Bushwick City Farm possible!
It’s been a long winter at Bushwick City Farm! We are now making preparations for Spring and are excited to plant some of the collared green and arugula seeds we saved from last season. We will also be working on some exciting new permaculture projects next season. Stop by the farm at 354 Stockton St. in Brooklyn on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:30pm – Dusk and see what we’ve been working on.
We are still giving out chicken eggs on a “take-what-you-need” basis every Sunday at 2pm.
Join us for an international fashion show and a day of food and fun at Bushwick City Farm.
The event will take place on July 26 at 4pm at 354 Stockton St. Brooklyn, NY 11206. There will be food for purchase and tickets will be available at the door for $3. Please join us and help raise some money so that we can keep growing free organic food and providing an open space in the community.
On October 27th, we had our third annual Halloween party at the Stockton St Farm. There was a great turnout for the festivities. We had face painting, a scavenger hunt and a piñata full of tasty treats. The neighborhood young people were also entertained by an epic tug of war and cargo bike hay rides from our friends at the Cargo Bike Collective. Here are some photos.
