East New York Farms!
Twitter handles/hashtags: EAST NEW YORK FARMS!, @ENYFARMS
Instagram handles: enyfarms
Facebook name: East New York Farms!
Overview: Our work includes two weekly farmers markets, a Youth Internship Program serving 35 children, a gardener assistance program, maintenance of three farms, a mini-grant program, and a Community Educator program that leads over 85 cooking demonstrations per year.
What’s interesting about this organization: Community gardeners are the backbone of East New York Farms!. In addition to their work growing food, they serve multiple roles as vendors, community educators, youth interns, board members, and beekeepers. All of this is in addition to their lives as parents, teachers, students, religious leaders, librarians, transit workers, grandparents, artists, and entrepreneurs. We believe the resources to change our food system are right here in our community.
