Our team worked with the organization focused on identifying potential opportunities within their local community for volunteers and support - as not only a garden, but an inclusive, community space.
EcoStation:NY is rooted in social and environmental justice and is inspired to explore the intersection of the two through local food and sustainable urban agriculture projects will educate, inspire, and empower. The organization was founded in 2009, growing 5 interrelated projects throughout Bushwick including Bushwick Farmers’ Market, the adult and youth programs of the Bushwick Campus Farm, the community run rooftop Farm-In-The-Sky, and collaborations with local organizations, specifically Make the Road NY (MRNY). These programs develop skills and opportunities for community members in urban farming, organizing markets, carpentry, event planning, grant-writing, cooking, and more. More importantly though, they believe that bringing people together around food is a powerful and enduring way to connect communities to tackle racism, classicism, sexism, and homophobia.
