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.
On Friday afternoon a red-tailed hawk decided to have a snack in one of the trees at the farm.
The very next day a parakeet was spotted sitting on a planter box.
Our new farm cat has taken an interest in the fowl attracted to the growing ecosystem. Stay tuned for more thrilling winter adventures!
