A Farm In Danger
In a Brooklyn inner-city community residents are fighting to keep their farm. The Bed-Stuy farm, once a neighborhood garbage dump, was transformed into an urban oasis that produces over 7000 lbs of fresh food every year, helping feed more than 4000 people a month through an emergency food pantry. The farm is a source of community pride that has inspired neighborhood greening, backyard food gardening and food pantry agriculture projects. It is a constant reminder to residents that better nutrition and healthy eating are within our grasp. Now, though, the farm is threatened by development.
