Is Urban Farm Training Important?

WE THINK SO!  We hope you do too! 
We are currently raising money on IOBY for our Urban Farm Training Program. Right now all donations will be doubled, please donate to support opportunities for all people in NYC to have access to high quality training.

Through a season on the Youth Farm, participants become intimately familiar with the tasks, challenges, and rewards of growing many varieties of vegetables and flowers appropriate to our region and community. This 20-hour per week programs provides the knowledge sense and feel for the physical, mental and spiritual energy required to produce nutritious and delicious food, beautiful flowers, and a rich and harmonious community space.  

Here are some scenes from this years program...
