Am in Central Brooklyn, working with 6 great community organizations who run markets. All 6 are creating innovative projects through their market, such as senior mixed baskets, rooftop gardens, night markets, food pantries and more. They use their market as their welcome wagon and as their laboratory for all of their ideas.
Inspiring to see what low-capital, high-energy activists can do with just a little bit of encouragement and entrepreneurial drive.
If you get to NYC, take the trip to Bed Stuy to see what is going on and share some ideas of your own with these wonderful organizations:
East New York Farms
Brooklyn Rescue Mission
Hattie Catharn Community Garden
Cypress Hills Youthmarket
Brownsville Farmers Market
Bushwick Farmers Market
