Please click the image above to vote for our Urban Farm Project!

The New York City Coalition Against Hunger, Flatbush Reformed Church, Horticultural Society of New York, Sustainable Flatbush, and other community groups are asking for your vote to support a collaborative project to create an organic urban farm to provide a source of nutritious food to the customers of the Church’s food pantry in Central Brooklyn, and we need your vote!

With the above expertise, the project will accomplish the following:

  1. We will create an urban farm using underutilized space at the Church. There are at least three spaces, 24X45, 25X50, and 18X19 to create gardens to provide nutritious food for low-income families.
  2. Organize and support community volunteers to work on the farm.
  3. Equip the urban farm with a training manual of care and a training curriculum.
  4. Conduct urban farming workshops that will bring together client families, community members, local non-profit groups, nutritionists, and other community residents to engage in the urban farm project.
  5. Evaluate the success of outreach efforts based on increased membership in the farm, anecdotal information and photo documentation about farm experiences, develop data collection tools and conduct interviews, and measure yields in order to monitor the impact of the urban farm for hungry residents.
