Brooklyn —

A community that harvests together, grows together. In Brownsville, the urban farming network continues to expand, week after week – as more local residents continue to visit, shop for produce, and eat at one of the biggest farms in their neighborhood.

Over 50 Brownsville community members stopped by Project EATS Harvest Festival at the Marcus Garvey Apartments’ 20,000-square-foot farm on Oct. 14. The festival featured live jazz by local band Jimmy Hill and the All-Starz, a cooking class demo with a nutritionist, face-painting for kids, and the newest addition to the Project EATS farm: a cubicle-style café.
