Winter Excitement at Stockton

February 18, 2013


image_6Along with the wild kids, the farm at Stockton has been visited by some unexpected wildlife.image_7

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!

Winter at Stockton

Our raised beds still have lots of swiss chard, carrots, beets and collards growing in them and the new chicken coop is coming along at Stockton St.

Building the Stockton Street Coop

December 26, 2012

In the frigid weather, Bushwick City Farm volunteers persevere and continue to expand our second lot on Stockton Street. We are very excited to announce that we are building a second chicken coop! This is a positive step for Bushwick City Farm and our animals because we’ll be able to transplant some of the chickens to our new coop. This will improve living conditions for all of our egg-laying friends. With the extra space, we’ll be able to take in more chickens and in turn, give away more free eggs every Sunday. With the construction of our new chicken coop, we’ll continue to feed our community. 




ImageBushwick City Farm would like to thank all those who made this construction possible! Likewise, we’d like to invite you to help us continue to expand our community farms by lending us a hand.

spOOktacular success!!

November 5, 2012

Before Hurricane Sandy decided to join our company for this year’s Halloween, Bushwick City Farm celebrated fall, harvest, and the benefits of hard work in costume! We did it up in style – farm style. Volunteers put up colorful decorations. Cats and scarecrows graced us with their presence. Our friends showed up in costume – bees were a buzzin’, princesses were strutting their stuff, mad hatters were simply mad. We tested our strength in a rigorous tug of war. Faces were painted; laughter was shared!





Another Halloween success! Until our next adventure, we’d love to see your smiling faces on the weekends. Hurricane Sandy did us a favor and did minimal damage to the farm – whew. The cold doesn’t stop us from carrying on. Come by – old and new friends are always welcome!
