Visit to Bushwick City Farm

After getting a tour of the farm, and learning about all the produce that is grown and donated for free to the community, we got to work!

We had various jobs such as turning the compost piles, cleaning the chicken coops, re planting some of the seedlings to larger beds and picking up litter. The farm lets neighbors in the community pick their own herbs and veggies, and gives away all the eggs collected from the chickens.

A group of our familiea caught fish from the aquaponics tank and transfered them to another tank. The remaining dirty water is used as fertilizer for the plants.

If you missed this project but want to volunteer on your own, you can stop by 354 Stockton Street any weekend from 1230- sunset.
